Student Sasha has high hopes for higher education

Last updated: 8 September, 2021

Sasha, 16, from Salford is a student at Co-op Academy Walkden. She studied for her GCSEs during the pandemic and is hopeful about her future education.

Despite the last 18 months being difficult for me at times, and having to face certain challenges when I was studying for my GCSEs, the pandemic gave me the time to take a step back and focus on my education.

I now have a great sense of pride in knowing that I can overcome adversity and I’m proud of what I’ve achieved, despite the challenges. 

The pandemic has taught me that if I want to achieve something, I can aim high to get the results I want. I’m excited to start my A levels and continue my education.
