My experience of becoming a mature student 0

University seemed to be a far cry for my ambitious aims, even though I have extremely ambitious aims, my past education achievements, I thought, would not support these ambitious aims. Here is a poem of exactly how I felt called hopes and chances.

When I left school, I was severely dyslexic, the thought of taking an academic career, was both scary and electric…

At 16, listening to a school advisor, leading me wrong, then looking none the wiser…

At 18, settling with construction, it didn’t feel right, just not the right direction…

As the year progress, as fun as it was, I was set for more, which gave me that buzz…

At 21, I set out on my own, running a business, didn’t feel at home…

At 24, expanding my knowledge, still felt the same, I had to acknowledge…

At 26, wanting to understand, human behaviour, psychology was at hand…

At 27, my world comes alive, now my dreams are playing, out in front of my eyes…

Later that year, I look to enhance, a Degree in Psychology, yes, I took the chance…

Now 29, I’m living my way, look at me advisor, listen to what I say…

Finished year two, exceeding by miles, I think about my achievement, look at my smile…

I thank my university, for giving me the chance, working as hard as I can, my ambitions enhance…

By having the belief, this is no longer a mystery, UWTSD gave me the inspiration, and the rest is history.
