“It’s been a very difficult time of my life but the College has supported me every step of the way, the tutors have helped me so much and it feels like they have been with me on this journey overcoming my challenges. This type of course has the perception of being very male dominated but this didn’t phase me one bit as I know I can do it just as well as anybody.”
