Day 5 – My Proudest Moment (30 Day Blogging Challenge)

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!
