What cool things have you been doing lately?

I applied to University! 2 years ago I had surgery for Endometriosis and the surgeon botched it all up. I was bed bound for 6 months from a simple keyhole surgery, missed out on my alevels and going to University. The next year I took repeating my alevels. University seemed way out of reach to me, so I put it off, and decided to work for my dad as his secretary. Shortly after he got very ill, so we took the year together for him to re-cup and I learnt first aid, stroke awareness courses, and cancer treatment aid. This year I decided I needed to go to university. within a few weeks, I got an unconditional offer on my dream course!

If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I'll Make a Man out of You from Mulan. I never saw the 'man' as a gender thing, I just heard 'be the best you can be, and if you fail at least pick yourself back up and get on with it!'

Where can people find you online?
