Project Manager & Web Designer
Hi! My name is Sinead, I’m 23 and the Let’s Talk… Project Manager and Web Designer. This project is important to me as I feel everyone deserves to be included. I’m a member of the LGBTQ+ community and I'm aware of the positive difference that feeling included and represented can make in a persons life. For someone who is commonly included and represented in society I think it can be easy to forget about what a privilege that is so I hope this project can educate and act as a starting point for improving inclusion efforts both in college and life in general.
Hi! My name is Saoirse, I'm 22 and the Let's Talk... Sound Designer. I am delighted to be a part of this project as I feel it is so important to highlight these topics and for everyone to feel included. I hope by creating the podcast we can educate people about inclusion and how it can be improved!
Hey there, I’m Alice Kelly. I am a mature student who enjoys long walks on the beach with my dogs. I also am interested in music, photography, graphic design and art. I’m delighted to be part of this project as it is near and dear to my heart. When I was younger I felt ostrasized for being a loud out spoken feminist and am still made feel ashamed if I openly discuss periods. This has to change, half the population gets periods. Hopefully with our podcast we can educate people, some of whom might not have been given the opportunity to learn about the benefits of diversity and inclusiveness yet :)
Host, Research & Communications
Hi my name is Paul and I am the host of the Let's Talk podcast! I think our project is important as I notice that there are still many people who are made to feel marginalised or othered in society and I believe this must change. Inclusion is important for all, especially for our third level students as they get out into the world.
