I still remember the day we dropped her off at her Halls of Residence to begin her three year stint as a university student. I recall the tears that I cried as I drove away leaving my little girl on her own for the first time in the big city. I needn't have worried though. My girl did us proud and took to life as a student with the same tenacity that she applies to everything in her life.
It wasn't always easy for her. She had some problems including some issues with her health which lead to her missing a lot of her second year studies. I must admit that I wasn't sure that she would continue with her degree at this time, and even told her that there would be no shame in stepping out of the situation for a while and picking it up again at a later date, especially as she was a year ahead of herself. But she fought back. Like she always does.
Today, my daughter received notification of her final results...a 2:1! I am incredibly proud of her and her achievements. It's as simple as that.
I know good things are heading her way!
