Today I graduated from the university of Glasgow with a degree in community development. Never did I think I would be graduating from university, especially at 18.

When I left school at 15 I was told that I was making a mistake and wouldn’t get very far but today has proved to me that with the right support and guidance you can do anything you really want to. I have had some incredible opportunities over the last few years and I am now fortunate enough to be doing the job I love. I’ll never stop chasing my dreams, anything is possible.
