Number 1 - Check!


So I've marked one of the 20 things to do before I'm 20 off my list, as of yesterday 22nd March I am now a  volunteer at the Egypt Museum! 

I've got a 20 hour probation period of training and completing workbooks etc. so that I can advance on and become a gallery assistant and hopefully maybe eventually gallery supervisor! The course I'm studying at uni is Ancient History and Egyptology and when I'm older I want to work within museums and heritage, most likely as a curator so this is such a fantastic opportunity for me to get experience and improve my CV. 

It's taken quite a lot for me to  get here because I am painstakingly shy and the thought of talking to strangers makes me so anxious and panicky that I want to vomit. I wouldn't have begun the process of applying for a volunteer role without my boyfriend. I know he reads this so I just want to let him know how grateful I am for all his pushing me to do this, making me feel better about everything and instilling me with a bit of confidence. Hopefully this experience will not only give me valuable things to add to my CV but also improve my confidence so that it's not as hard for me to take up opportunities like this in the future.

My first actual proper day is next Wednesday, wish me luck!
