      Pros

      Got to meet lots of nice people and had a variety of roles, which allowed me to gain experience in different capacities. It was a pleasure to serve as an ambassador and I would definitely do it again.

      Cons

      We had to wear pink hoodies or shirts and I think a more neutral colour could have been chosen. Some of the events were not co-ordinated very well and ambassadors were either standing around with nothing to do or didn't know what they needed to do.
