I was handed my Fellowship certificate by Iona Heath last week. A lovely event, hosted by one of my favourite people in the College, the amazing Amanda Howe. Having your name read by her feels like you just won the Nobel peace prize. I felt a bit humbled by the achievements of my fellow nominees, but I think that might just be intended.
Only downside: Only 3 of the dozens of other nominees were from Essex faculty.
Still. Being recognized for your work by your peers does feel good.
