I’m Liz Przyborski and I am joining the CfLaT team for this next academic year as a placement student. I grew up in Durham but during term time I have a flat with three friends in Jesmond. I am a very sociable person; my hobbies include spending time with friends, shopping and visiting new places, as well as sports activities such as running and sometimes playing tennis.

So far, I have completed the first two years of a psychology degree at Newcastle University and I am thrilled to be offered the opportunity to get involved at CfLaT and the projects included. Looking ahead, after I have finished my degree, I plan to do a PGCE in secondary education in hope to become a psychology teacher, so I am very keen to get hands on with school involvement, visits and interactions with children and families. During my degree, I have found aspects of mental health and wellbeing particularly interesting, as well as child’s development and the development/ onset of learning difficulties. I am very much looking forward to this next year and seeing what variety of projects I can be involved in.
