After 3 years of blood, sweat and tears (literally), I have left Keele University with a 2:1 LLB (Hons) Law degree, and last Thursday was my graduation ceremony. As luck would have it, England is having a heat wave so my family got to experience the campus at its most beautiful best. Over the last three years I’ve had my ups and downs, and last year I honestly thought I was going to have to drop out due to a brain tumor. Luckily, thanks to support of friends and family, I made it through my degree. Now I am in such an amazing position, with a legal job, 2 placements and being accepted at three Law Schools to do my Masters and LPC in September. Thursday really helped to show me how much I have achieved, especially in the last year. From seeing lecturers and friends on my course, to having official photographs and collecting my gown, it was something very special, and I am so excited to see what happens next.

Congratulations to all those graduating this summer. In the words of Elle Woods, WE DID IT!
