Joining CLEFT has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve done since starting my masters degree in speech and language therapy. The process was easy, and my informal interview was more like brainstorming and sharing ideas with Shonnelly! We then met again to work out logistics - Shonnelly was able to put me in touch with Marie (SLT and CLEFT vice chair), allowing us to organise a podcast and talk with UCL masters students. Being part of the trainee team has allowed me to share my knowledge of speech and language therapy with a range of professionals and meet the wider CLEFT charity on our yearly away day.
