OH YES. It happened. I’m now an official Teesside Uni BA Graduate and what a fantastic day it was. Apart from feeling like Harry Potter in my gown (which was awesome FYI), the day was full of joy, laughter and the perfect end to an era.


The day started super early, like 6:30am early (not good for someone who enjoys pressing the snooze button). I threw myself out of bed, showered, dressed and headed down to the University campus. Once my gown had been fitted, I made my way to the photography floor where I had my official photos taken and began to meet up with friends from my course. By 9am the sun was shining and the weather was glorious. The ceremony fast approached and completely flew by. Receiving my certificate on stage and watching everyone cheer and clap was one of the most rewarding moments of my life. I can not explain how proud I feel and after all the doubt, stress, tears, ups and downs (as cliche as it sounds) it’s over! Done and dusted.

I’m officially a grown up and weirdly I can say, I’m officially out of education. The real world is upon me and I will take along every lesson I learnt at University (and not only from my Marketing lectures). University taught me never to give up with times are hard, never to let people make you feel like you’re not good enough, never to wait around for things to happen – and make them happen yourself.

I’d just like to say a huge thank you to all of the academics at Teesside, my family, friends and anyone who has supported me through this journey to make this day happen. Graduating is one thing, but receiving a First Class Honours Degree and special award for Best Marketing Essay by Oxford Press… I couldn’t have asked for a better University ending.
