When I was first told I would be working on a research project over the summer for the sociology department I was filled with a lot of questions and emotions. Apart from the obvious joy which came with selection, I bore a deep feeling of dread: Was I up for the challenge or would I just betray the trust that the department and staff had placed in me? Would I be chucked in the deep end and figuratively left to drown? In the following ten weeks I discovered that with the help of other staff members and a lot of hard work that this was going to a project I wouldn’t forget.
