Throughout life, my ambition in terms of my career, has been
shared by both education and business. Working with children and and playing such
an important role in their lives is a very honourable responsibility.
The appeal of an education degree to me, is the feeling of knowing

my teachers inspired me through their dedication, and ability to make
learning engaging. I feel very inspired to share knowledge and skills, in which I was once
taught, whilst also learning from the children that I teach.

confident in myself. I have taken this gap year to work and to have an understanding
of the work life ethic. This is helping me fund myself for my basic needs and
also helping me be more independent.
In my own time I am currently completing an online Make-Up
artist course, as make up and beauty play a major role in my day-to-day life. I
am a self taught free lance make-up artist and I have been doing freelance
since I was 14 years old. Freelance has really helped me grow as an individual
