I am still at school, but have started on this course because recently my nan died and she needed extra help that me or any of my family knew how to give. I have decided I want to go into the caring profession, but not nursing and so my parents and I thought this would be a good option for me to know what route I later want to take. They even paid for it for me. It is hard as I am studying for school already but I just dedicate a couple of hours at the weekend to this – I do it because I want to do it and wish I could do it at school instead of French or art.
Studying a subject that I have always felt passionate about, in my own time, in my own space, in my own way!
