Success at the University of Sheffield | Graduation | #MadeinSheffield
Ever since I’ve joined foundation, I’ve seen
the perspectives of many different people. I’ve learned to just imagine that I have a
new outlook and a new perspective on life in general. I’ve learned how other people
operate and this is all going to serve to help me in the future with my job, with meeting
new people as friends. I think my confidence has taken a huge boost from the fact that
I’ve achieved a first in my degree as well. I feel really happy, I feel the warmth from
everyone, everyone’s wishing me congratulations, you feel on top of the world that you know
you’ve achieved something, and you get the recognition from such a renowned institution
in the UK, which is one of the top 100s. So it does make you feel really proud, and it
is a proud moment for me, so I’m happy to share it with my family. I’m looking forward to doing my masters. I
do have a job offer in Kenya for a tax company, but I still want to pursue my masters. If
not, I’ve also got this opportunity to volunteer for Latitude, which is an organisation in
the UK that helps international students volunteer in the UK for schools in rural areas. That
sort of thing. So I want to either take a gap year and volunteer, or do my masters.
I’ve got three options really. I’ll see how it goes after my graduation and decide what’s
the best for me. I think it’s a very proud moment for me because
my parents are here and I’ve met a couple of my friends and their parents and it’s just
an overwhelming experience overall. I can’t believe I’ve come this far from foundation.
More of the experience comes from the University. I’ve met a lot of friends. Overall it’s been
a wonderful experience and if I had to do it again, I would do it again.
