It has been a year since I stood up on stage and collected my certificate to say I graduated from The University of Northampton with a BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies degree.
It’s always scary when you’re in school and you have to choose either going to university or starting work. At first, I wasn’t sure on what I wanted to do. I was scrolling through all the possible courses I could apply for and all the courses involving children just caught my eye and I thought that it’d be something I could enjoy. After months of thinking and deciding which university would be best for me, I cut the list down to 3 possible universities; Northampton, Peterborough and Bedford. I wanted to stay close to home because living on campus never really interested me.
My top choice was Northampton and I was a lucky few to have the opportunity to go to university which was my first choice. Receiving that email on results day was the best feeling in the world. 3 long years went by and through all the struggles, the ups and downs, the tears, I qualified with a BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies degree.
I received my first job after qualifying working in a nursery. On 31st July I would have been at the nursery for an entire year. Al the children I have looked after for the past year are slowly starting to leave ready for school in September and it’s the best feeling in the world knowing that I helped shape their future.
Goals for the future is always a tricky one because you always wish they would come true and sometimes it jut wasnt meant to be. But one thing I would love to accomplish would be to have my own nursery. That would be a dream come true.
Thank you for reading. Id love to know if you guys are currently in uni or recently graduated and what course you did. Until next time.
