Against All Odds | Marlene Trimble | TEDxQueensUniversityBelfast

Marlene had a very unique experience in getting into university. She talks about the journey she took and ultimately the people who helped her along the way. She is hopeful that her talk will inspire others who may be in a similar position and may allow them access to the help she received. All odds were against Marlene attending university but she made it. My name is Marlene Trimble, I am 22 years old and I am currently employed full time with Mencap. I enjoy the work I currently do and am very hard working and dedicated. I live independently in Derry, Northern Ireland and completed a Psychology degree with Queen’s University Belfast in June 2018. I am very passionate about psychology and how it can help others. My dream career would be applying my degree in a way that would help others the most. I love reading fiction and listening to music as well as getting out for walks in my spare time. My favourite movie series would have to be Harry Potter but I love all things Marvel. My favourite author at the moment would have to be Trudi Canavan, her books are fantastic and very engaging. My favourite place to go to relax is the beach, it always helps me to feel calm and gather my thoughts. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
