I’m hoping my ultimate proudest moment hasn’t happened yet, as I’m hoping this will be either graduating from my BA, future Msc or will be a day where I’m proud of a person that I’ve made and pushed out.
But my proudest moment so far has probably been getting into university – I genuinely didn’t know if it would happen. I felt confident I’d get into my insurance choice but really wasn’t sure if I would. I think deep down I knew that if I didn’t get into my first choice uni & course, I wouldn’t have gone at all. I had a rough time during my A levels, personally and academically. I was just so desperate to get in because I knew I was capable of getting the grades but I wasn’t convinced what I’d managed in the exam hall was enough.
I was going through a lot during my AS exams and didn’t perform as well as I should’ve, so there was a lot of making up to do during my A2s but somehow (well, with a bloody lot of work) I did it! I actually ended up doing even better than I needed to to get in. I think the best part was when I phoned my dad, who was at work, as soon as I found out & I could hear him tearing up over the phone!
