Graham Construction

My name is Ciara, I'm 24 years old and I am an environmental advisor at Graham Construction. I've always been passionate about the environment, even when I was a child I was fascinated by everything nature had to offer. I am very privileged to have had the opportunity to pursue a career in a field i am truly passionate about. I graduated with a first class honours in Environmental Science from Trinity College Dublin in 2020. Knowing I wanted to further my knowledge and develop my interest in sustainable development, I applied to complete a MSc. in Leadership for Sustainable Development in Queens University Belfast, from which I graduated with a distinction in 2021. I think that the skills I learnt through both degrees have filled me with confidence to make a difference in my field. During this programme, I am really looking forward to meeting other young leaders in my field, learning from one another and from the world-class speakers during the workshops. I am hopeful that at the end of this workshop we, together, will have acquired a skill set which well help us understand how to develop Northern Ireland, and further afield, in a sustainable manner.
