Hello, I am Tanya! I am a consumer neuroscience intern at Reflect Digital. I am going into my third year studying Psychology at the University of Kent.
Initially upon joining university, I was academically interested in Business Psychology. I was fortunate to have been involved in a research project on Leadership and Employee Wellbeing, which gave me insight into the Business Psychology research field. However I have also explored my passion for learning more about the interaction between Business, Psychology and Technology. I’ve spontaneously taken part in fun events ranging from hackathons to entrepreneurship competitions.
My roles of responsibility at university include being an ambassador for the School of Psychology, a College Community Life Assistant and the Careers Officer for the Psychology society. All of which have allowed me to connect with people from diverse backgrounds and learn from unique experiences.
Currently I am on summer study break, absorbing as much as I can from this dynamic internship experience! Joining the team has creatively challenged me and has peaked my interest in neuromarketing. I am very excited to gain new skills in this collaborative internship environment and discover more about the working mechanisms behind an agency.
Tanya's Likes & Dislikes
Likes: I am definitely a tea-aholic with at least 10 different types of tea in my cupboard, stocked up to fuel my day! I enjoy kickboxing and I have a blackbelt in Taekwondo! When I’m not cozied up at home reading a book, I am always looking for my next adventure. I love fresh air! Being surrounded by nature really soothes my soul.
Dislikes: I am a bit of a picky eater and not a "fishy" person! Horror movies are not for me. While psychological thrillers are interesting, I just cannot sit through a horror movie! Also the sound of metal scraping on metal is absolutely terrifying!
