What I did on my work experience
I had an amazing opportunity to go to the European Parliament with the National Farmers’ Union of Wales. We were able to spend time quizzing members of the European Parliament as well as sitting in on important meetings regarding the passing of new legislation. We also got the chance to sit down with the MEP from South Wales and put across our views on how farmers of a similar age to us could do with more support when looking to start their own farm. It was great to get a better understanding of politics and its relevance within modern farming and how it can affect the industry I want to work in.
Once I’ve finished studying, I want to build on everything I’ve learnt by travelling the world and viewing farming and how it works in different areas. And then use that knowledge to hopefully bring ideas back to Britain to help not just my own farm but hopefully others as well. I’m also definitely going to stay open-minded towards opportunities within politics, but at the moment I’m focusing on my agriculture studies.
