      Hi Iso,
      Within in engineering I think the most nerve-racking thing was the first test of my throwing frame where I got people to sit on it and throw the shot put… It was the moment of truth and I was nervous about whether I’d got all of my calculations right! (It didn’t collapse so that was a success! 🙂 )
      Outside of engineering I think it was when I went white-water rafting! Honestly the scariest thing I’ve done – think I spent most of the time crouched in the bottom of the raft!
      Have you done something where you were nervous but glad you did it afterwards?
