The support I received from the health and social care teacher in achieving my ambition was immense! I faced many unexpected barriers in completing the assignments and with her continued encouragement and enthusiasm she gave me the determination to succeed. Fast forward to January 2021, the middle of the pandemic I started my nursing degree. I was finally, ‘ a student nurse – something I never thought I would achieve .’ I love my career and have a true passion for nursing.”
