As a reach the end of my experience I need to reflect on my learning and development over the past year. This conversation with my mentor is the first time I have reflected on my overall development in my first year at university.

During my easter holidays I performed in a production of Lysistrata, a production which was a collaberation between the Univesity theatre group and a professional theatre group, I learnt many things during this process.

Part of my time during first year was spent trying to do activities that may assist me in my future career. I have begun to consider broadcasting as a possible career path and have become a reporter for the university newspaper in order to gain experience in media.

One of the goals in my personal development plan is to maintain and improve my sense of wellbeing but what do I understand by this? I participated in a Lifewide Education survey and interview which helped me reflect on and explain my understandings.

I think of wellbeing as being healthy and looking after yourself.  I mean not just my physical wellbeing, like eating healthy, doing exercise, looking after yourself, but also my mental wellbeing, I think it is important to try to get a balance in life, so that mentally you’re fine, you’re not over stressed or over worked or anything like that. So for me wellbeing is about seeking a balance in life. Having said this when I completed the questionnaire for the survey it made me realise that it involves lots of other things.
