• Question: How does it feel now that Ashley is evicted? Is some of the pressure eased off you a little bit or has more pressure come on you?

      Its a lot more pressure. What was once a one in 5 is now one in 4.
      Thankfully, I’m like a diamond – I am formed by pressure. 😉

      I didn’t realise I’d be so nervous! I thought it’d be grand. There is pressure but there’s nothing that we can do now, which makes it worse! I hope you guys are enjoying it 😀

      Its grand.. I have been very busy early this week so havent had as much time to spend here as I would like.. so havent really had time to think about pressure.. till now!

      Anyway.. the point of this is to show how diverse and rewarding a career engineering can be. If I have helped any of you guys understand this then I am happy. BUT dont take our word for it… get some work experience shadowing an engineer.. have more chats.. look up things like average salaries etc.. get informed but at least you have started by asking 5 different engineers.

      I kind of forgot it was a competition until I saw that e-mail come through saying Ashley was evicted! :O Anyway, everyone has the same aim – spread the word about cool and interesting engineering can be and get more young people involved init and thinking about it. Also all the ideas for the prize money are good, so not letting the pressure get to me 🙂
