Charlotte is a final-year Diagnostic Radiography student studying at Bangor University. She became a student representative towards the end of 2019 as she is passionate about the student voice and helping other students. Charlotte did not pursue a Radiography career as a school leaver even though she knew that she wanted to be a Radiographer. Instead she worked in an administration role for the NHS where Charlotte was able to acquire communication skills that would be invaluable in her new role. She then began her journey to become a Diagnostic Radiographer and has not looked back since starting the course. ‘I enjoy every aspect of radiography and the challenges it brings’.
