Self-motivated student off to college

Last updated: 8 September, 2021

Louie is planning to go to college to study A Levels in Psychology, English Literature and History. 

The pandemic has been difficult at points because there was a self-motivation needed. At times, because we’ve been so isolated, it’s been a challenge to find that motivation, despite there being a lot of support.

It has been a reminder that we are only human. Things are going to happen and, unfortunately, something can come along to knock you off your feet and change everything.  

It has also been a really good way to learn to improve and adapt in difficult situations. I did not get the opportunity to do work experience, which a lot of us were really looking forward to. It was going to be the way we planned to get into work.
