Last year’s 100 Minds was brilliant so I was delighted to get chosen again as a mentor for Year 4 of 100 Minds. I have a few more students to mentor than I did last year so it took some time to figure out my schedule to meet and stay in touch with them all. But in reality if you make a few minutes here and there it is easy to keep on top of things.
So, why did I take part in 100minds?
So far, 100minds has been one of the most exciting, challenging and overall rewarding experiences of my college life. Each year, an incredible cause has galvanised an inspired & driven group of students to push themselves to raise as much as possible in unique and fun ways. This year is no different and it has been an absolute privilege to represent 100minds and the children of Temple Street to leap into a new chapter for the organisation.
100minds has been the most rewarding experience I've signed up for to date, and the best part? All it has cost me is my own time and in return I've been able to help towards the greater good and make a real impact on these children's lives.

I'm currently about to begin my third year of BESS in Trinity College Dublin, focusing on the Business and Economics subject areas. While originally from Cork I have grown to like Dublin: living somewhere new has helped my development as a person and inspired me to continue gaining further experience in the future.

When I got the call last year from the founder of 100minds to explain the idea behind the organisation and to extend an invitation for me to become a student fundraising mentor, there wasn’t a second of hesitation in my answer.
