I am so excited to be starting University in September, where I will be studying Physics. This is the start of my Physics career and I’m excited to meet new people and explore new academic ideas during my degree. I come from a complicated family background and a series of events has led to me living alone with my mum and sister. This is not a negative situation for me but it means that I can’t always do the things all of my friends do. I was worried this problem would stop me from experiencing university to the fullest, due to money worries. However, I am excited now at the prospect of being able to join in and experience everything my peers will during the course, with the help of this bursary from the John Moran Trust!

After successfully completing my first semester, I progressed to the second semester of my Foundation Year. Throughout the semester, I had to deal with a lot of personal medical problems, which knocked my confidence. I had to work even harder to achieve the grades I wanted but I had amazing support from my friends and family. For which I am very grateful. 

I was able to complete the year with an overall average of 78%, despite these challenges. I am so proud and the mark has reignited my excitement for university. 

Having taken advice I have also changed my degree from Physics to Geophysics.  I think I'll find the new content interesting.  I'm excited to start this September.
