Hi, I’m Imogen and I run the How to Student blog. Writing a blog was never really on my life radar but I’m finding it to be an entertaining and enjoyable experience. When I’m not blogging I can be found completing my Bachelor of Science degree, watching anime with my friends or riding the Segway at Questacon.
My degree major is science communication, a growing subject that looks at the strategies and techniques that scientists can use to communicate their research to wider audiences. This blog is part of a science communication internship project. Through the blog I hope to give the wider world a greater insight into the unique everyday lives of young scientists.
I’m a hermit by nature so making friends in my first week was tricky, but much easier than high school had been. It helps that the people here in uni don’t mind if you’re a little dorky. Don’t believe me? Here’s the conversation that lead to me gaining my first friend.
