How does it feel to graduate today?
I would say I reached the next milestone and it's one of the many that I'm going to be continuing to reach in my lifetime. I'm the first in my family to go to university and to graduate. I'm the oldest of my siblings and my parents didn't complete their education, so it is definitely a big deal for my family.
What did you particularly enjoy about your degree?
I like how I was able to study pretty much everything. There's a bit of philosophy in it and there's more practical stuff. It's a study of society and one of my modules was education, health and sports and there was another module that surrounded the work placement. I loved the fact that I was able to do things on the more practical side. Some topics were about the working world so I wasn’t just being stereotypically academic and just studying the books; I had the best of both worlds.
What are your plans now that you’ve graduated?
I'm getting a part-time job as a classroom assistant to see if I want to be a teacher in the future.
