I'm so happy I did B-Hive and so grateful I had the opportunity to do it, the experiences I've gained from winning are amazing and there's no way I would have been able to get this amount of paid placements any other way. I was in complete shock when I won! I wasn't expecting it at all, I felt so nervous during the pitch but it was also such an adrenaline rush at the same time. My advice would be to do take part in B-Hive, and try not to leave it to last minute! Doing the placements have been so valuable for me going into my third year, not only have I learnt a lot that I wouldn't have at uni, I also have made connections with local PR agencies. I have had so much fun and taking part in B-Hive it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Doing these placements has made me so excited to leave uni and go into the world of work!
