If you have been reading my blog since I was a student you may well have read about my research journey as I worked my way through the dissertation module of my MSc.
It feels so long ago in some ways that it all began with a mind map of ideas and what I thought was far to many questions. Ultimately I learned that through the process that having questions is the key to developing research and it is that desire for answers that drives us to partake in the research process.
I never imagined when I started the research module with little confidence in my research and writing ability that I would ever conduct research and write something that would be good enough to be published. But here we are, nearly a year on from graduation and there is a published article.
I'm incredibly thankful to the Occupational Therapy tutors at University of Cumbria and particularly my dissertation supervisor & personal tutor for fostering the drive and enthusiasm for research.
