After completing a BTEC in Applied Science, a National Diploma and an Advance Welsh Baccalaureate, Serena is now studying Criminology where she is expected to gain first class honours.
Serena continues to support her former college, for which she is a Student Ambassador, supporting learners with her maturity and knowledge. Serena has been able to draw on her own experiences to influence others, including a young person who lacked confidence and motivation. Serena is described as a great inspiration to the college and a pillar of strength by her lecturer.
“Without Bridgend College I don’t know where I’d be. Severe depression cost me almost two years of education and now I’d like to repay the college by one day lecturing there in forensics.”
