We are thrilled to announce that Lidia Gilca will be working with us as an intern until mid-August. Lidia is a MSc student of Economic and Financial Risk Analysis at Maynooth University, having completed a BA in Finance there.Lidia, who is originally from Moldova, has lived in County Kildare from the age of nine. She is especially interested in learning more about investments, particularly in renewable energies. She is enjoying seeing how a financial business is run from marketing to project selection.Lidia speaks many languages including Romanian, Russian, Italian and a bit of French! In her spare time, she volunteers at Kildare Animal Foundation. Lidia is the first student to come to us from Maynooth University as part of a scheme called Clear Path, which will see a student from the Department of Finance, Economics and Accounting come to Solar 21 or Clear Financial each year for a 12-week internship. Clear Path was the brainchild of Steven Moles, a financial planning consultant with Clear Financial.We are very happy to have her expertise at our disposal for the next few months.
