Elayne is 18 years old and is in her final year of sixth form. She decided to get involved with Student Life as she likes the idea of students sharing their stories, and hopes to be part of it.
I bet you don’t remember all the things we’ve been through. All the times you thought you wouldn’t get through something, and yet you are here, reading this. So whatever it is, just know that it will get better. I know things don’t always go according to plan, but I bet you are where you need to be. Whether that is in university, or a very last minute decision to be somewhere else.
Or maybe this isn’t about struggling, maybe it’s just looking back to who I was before. I honestly can’t predict who I’m going be, or rather, who I am right now, as you are reading this. But I’m living life, and it is always full of surprises, I’m sure you know that. And I’m also sure that whoever I have turned out to be, is an even better person than I imagined. With that said, I’ve built the foundations for us, now the rest is up to you. Do what makes you happy, be with the people you love and be the person you are proud of.
