Read her post below.

995 - 21 years old. 2nd year of LLB Law, in University in Cardiff Wales, UWCC.

I was in the throes of deep depression.

My parents divorced, Dad remarried and Mum emigrated.

I had no home to go back to.

I didn't have enough money to complete my degree.

I was frightened and anxious.

I lamented with God, I told Him I was so angry with Him, but I still loved Him and I asked Him to hold me tight and never let me go.

I found two jobs at this point and studied hard.

I didn't know where I would end up but I knew knowledge would get me there.

As long as I had breath in my body, I was going to get there.

Never doubt that you can get there.

Never stop moving forward.
