During my time at University the We Care Team have helped me in ways I didn’t ever think I needed. They supported me like the family I have never had, but always wanted. Their support never stopped, whether it be at night or during a hard time in the Pandemic. They stepped up even more and constantly checked up on me knowing I was living alone. In the back of my mind the reassurance of knowing they were there really got me through those hard times.
I have always aspired to a PE teacher so after graduating from Sunderland I began my teacher training. Looking into the future I’d love to teach abroad, maybe somewhere like Spain.
I’ve met people from all over the world who I probably wouldn’t have met if I didn’t go to university. I’ve made good friends for life during my time at Sunderland, which I’m so grateful for.
To anyone who is ever unsure about asking for help or support no matter how big or small, reach out, ask for help. The team are there to support you and will do so in the best way they can. There is no greater relief than sharing your problem or seeking help and having that weight lifted from your shoulders.
