This time last year I had completed my university interview after being forced by my school to apply to the course I no longer wanted to do. When I was at the interview I began thinking that maybe it was what I wanted. Maybe it is what I want to do.
Me and my mum and sisters flew to Northern Ireland to visit family and my letters came through in the post to confirm or decline me a place on the course. Sadly I hadn’t received the course that I had applied for.
My Auntie said ‘everything happens for a reason’
and while at the time I kind of didn’t believe it, and hundreds of thoughts were going round in my head I can see it now. I’m so grateful for the things I’ve been through and done to get me to this point in my life. I’m doing a college course that I love, I spend half the week with people that make me laugh till my sides hurt and I finally feel content with where I am right now.
And although my future path is still unclear I know that things will work out once again, just like they have many times before. At college, my group have began preparation for writing personal statements and I’m finally not being forced to write one. I know that university isn’t for me so I’m going to start hopefully building my own career, in hopes that when I finish college in Summer 2016 I can start working for myself.
