Here we share some messages sent to you from graduates of last year, perhaps the only graduates who know about the particular challenges you faced and overcame. Well done.
‘Huge congratulations to you all, the Class of 2021! You did it. You completed your degree and in such difficult times too. So well done. Be very proud of yourself! Good luck in your next venture! You will be needed now more than ever.’ – Jenna.
‘Congratulations graduates! It has been an incredibly difficult couple of years in the rise of the pandemic, but you have accomplished a massive achievement and for that you should be so proud of yourselves! I graduated last year and went on to do a PGCE secondary in Psychology. As someone who also suffers with anxiety I didn’t think that I would be cut out for teaching and there were times where I doubted and questioned myself, but to my amazement I have learnt so much and come so far! You too can do the same, so don’t let yourself or anyone ever tell you that you are not capable, because you absolutely are, and just remember that your mental health status does not define you or determine your success, you do! I wish you all the very best for the future! Good luck’ – Jamie Hawkins
“Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will”
JUST DO IT!!’ – Tom Kemna, MSc Logistics, Supply Chain and Data Analytics
‘Congratulations Class of 2021! You’ve made it through the hours of studying and multitasking. You sacrificed your personal time and have gained a wealth of knowledge and that nobody can take away from you. Use it. New opportunities will be coming your way… perhaps not in the specific way you envisioned… do not be afraid to take a chance and seize it. If it is not for you, do not be afraid to walk away. There is a life lesson in every encounter good or bad. Reflect and grow. Never stop growing and improving yourself’ – Mutinta Namasiku Chaambwa
