So honoured to be selected as an ICE President's Future Leader - it's an amazing opportunity to be a part of. I look forward to working with the ICE on many of their key projects to further our outreach, innovation, and impact to promote Civil engineering. As we reach our 200-year anniversary, it is especially crucial to step back and remark on our progress whilst making plans for a more sustainable future.

I am honoured to have been selected as one of Professor Lord Robert Mair's Future Leaders for the ICE's 200th year and I am looking forward to meeting and working with Industry leaders to help illustrate how accessible civil engineering is to all age ranges, and how it has the ability to transform lives for all stakeholders. As a passionate engineer with particular interest in environmental issues, I am interested to see how we can address the issue of climate change from within the ICE.

I am very excited to start my journey as one of the President's Future Leaders and hope to use my role to promote the importance of Technicians in civil engineering and encourage others to be more proactive within the industry. Most importantly, it will be an honour and experience to work with the President himself and to learn from individuals at a high level in the construction industry. It will be very special to be a Future Leader during such an iconic year for the ICE as they celebrate and look back over the past 200 years in civil engineering.

The more I work in infrastructure the more I realise that there is far more to civil engineering than technical design. The President's Future Leaders scheme is a great opportunity to get exposure to the other elements of the industry at graduate engineer level. I am looking forward to working with Professor Lord Mair and the other Future Leaders to learn more about the civil engineering industry and the impacts it can have on society.

Being a President's Future Leader is a unique privilege and a fantastic opportunity to engage and contribute to the work of the ICE. I am looking forward to working with Professor Lord Robert Mair and other industry leaders on key civil engineering initiatives. With 2018 being the ICE's bicentenary - it will be a great opportunity to shine a spotlight on the Institution's positive impact over the past two centuries. Hopefully, in the process we can help inspire the next generation who will take the profession forward.

I'm really looking forward to working with the President and the other Future Leaders over the course of the coming year (the bicentenary, no less!) to explore the developments in technology, education and the digitisation of our industry. It's a great opportunity to work alongside some of the leading industry professionals, and I'm looking forward to injecting a little creative youthful enthusiasm into proceedings!

Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the ICE in 2018, my time as a President's Future Leader will hopefully be full of interesting encounters with engineers, industry leaders, and the wider public. I'm looking forward to a year of challenging projects and lots of fun with my fellow Future Leaders.
