I was born in Portsmouth but what brought me to the uni was my girlfriend. When I first met her she had just graduated from a Psychology degree and I thought ‘it's about time I went to university'. She helped me get to where I am today. I did my access course at Highbury, I got accepted with an unconditional offer to Portsmouth and I thought ‘this isn’t real’. I got in and I was bouncing off the walls. Since then I’ve been helping my sister get into university and helping my niece get into education. They’re really looking up to me.
