As a GOI-IES scholar I intend to take my studies to heart but I will also be actively involved in Irish society by engaging in the following activities.
Firstly, by being part of voluntary organizations like the Irish Red Cross, and engaging in activities like Blood donation (I believe giving blood is an easy way to save lives), Disaster relief, training, and certification in order to create awareness and save lives. Another prominent voluntary organization is the Catholic Guides of Ireland, being a devoted Roman Catholic I would like to join this organization and be part of the group of adult volunteers.
Secondly, by organizing free coaching classes for children. Everyone, at some point or another, had a coach and those that greatly impacted our lives. As a GOI-IES scholar, coaching and training kids at a tender age on the application and importance of science and technology is a significant way to invest in the future generation of Irish society in the Aspect of Science and Technology. However, combining practical knowledge from my working experience and skills acquired as a GOI-IES scholar I will effectively impact a basic knowledge of IT System Engineering on young talented minds.
In addition, to be highly involved in Irish society, I intend to participate in internship programs like the Dublin Internships to improve my knowledge and skills in Communication Engineering. Sports, being a player and a lover of football, I intend to join the TU Dublin Football team in other to engage in football competitions. Also, being part of the Student Union and engaging in campus social activities will be a considerable way to raise awareness of the GOI-IES scheme by means of social media, blogs, and vlogs, encouraging more talented minds to study in Ireland and thus contribute to the Irish economy
