'ask him his salary - collage by Amy Gamble'

There's been some massive changes to my life recently. Suddenly everythings becoming so real! About 4 years ago now was when I found out I would be going to Coventry University. I had applied to University to study Fine Art. I really wanted to go to Birmingham City University however come results day that didn't go as planned and I ended up getting in to Coventry. I was still happy because I was going to uni! 

Now my three years is over... I've just finished my course and I got my grade yesterday. I have a 2:1 degree in Fine Art. I'm now a Bachelor of Arts with Honours! 

Going to university was something I always knew I wanted to do, getting into Coventry wasn't straight forward, but I didn't let it stop me. I've now finished with the grade I needed and I'm so happy but the last year or so I have been feeling really down about uni and have been struggling with my work. Honestly I think I started to fall out of love with making art however I was so close to the end that I didn't let myself give up. 

So I managed to get everything finished, hung up and exhibited. I was so so glad it was all over but then I had to await my results. I didn't do very well in my last module which was expected but I managed to get my 2:1 overall which is amazing! I want to be a teacher and to get on the teacher training course you need a minimum 2:1.

My decision to go to university has changed my life in so many ways. I've learnt so much about the real world and deadlines. I have a title after my name now which will hopefully open up many doors for me. I want to make something of myself and now i'm a graduate I will hopefully be able to get a decent job and start my living my life.
