'You are the artist
of your life...'
When did you study at RNC?
2017 to 2020
What courses did you study?
Audio Media Production, Braille, Business Administration, Health and Social Care, IT, Mathematics and Performing Arts
Leber's Amaurosis, Nystagmus
'In addition to my studies at RNC I also received mobility and independent living skills training and worked with the Transitions team to gain further skills and knowledge to help boost my confidence when searching for further education and employment.
After leaving College, I took the opportunity to work with the NHS volunteer service. My role was to be a check in and chat responder. Every day was a different day and every person had a unique story to tell. I spoke to many individuals from different backgrounds and abilities. Alongside my voluntary work I also undertook a teaching qualification.
Juggling my studies and my voluntary work wasn't an easy task but all of the effort, hard work and determination has eventually paid off and I have been accepted for a teaching role which commences in September 2021.
I have also started to turn my hobby of crafting into a professional passion. I now create canvases with kaleidoscope effects. I work alongside a small team to ensure that my passion is turned into reality.
When I was young, my passion had always been in the world of art and crafts. I feel that I have now turned this into something that is unique and enjoyable.
I would advise any future students to never give up on your dreams and aspirations. You are the artist of your life, so don't give your paintbrush to anyone else.'
