PR Masters Graduation 2014 – Thank you Catherine Sweet!

PR Masters Graduation 2014 – Thank you Catherine Sweet!

‘Dream big, and with focus and hard work, anything is possible’ – Paul Goodison

I did it! I now have a PR Masters, with Merit, from Southampton Solent University.

There are times you plan, organise and work and then there are the rare, beautiful moments you get to reflect upon the things you have achieved. Graduation is one of those things. Pomp and ceremony, jazzy gowns and caps signify a tradition purely focused on achievement, a pause before you swiftly move on and begin evolving further.

Reflection also allows you appreciate the wonderful people you have supporting you, and I am so incredibly lucky to have such a vivacious, fabulous, intelligent mentor in Catherine Sweet. I have spent a lot of time trying to find the words to express my thanks for guiding me through the past year and half, for your unwavering support and no amount of words seem to cut the mustard.

So it’s simple, but the feeling and appreciation behind it is genuinely gigantic…

Catherine Sweet – THANK YOU – I couldn’t have done it without you.

The wonderful Catherine Sweet!

 

At Graduation they said you will never forget a good teacher. I know I certainly won’t.

However, I also must thank a few other people. Don’t worry it won’t be as long as an Oscars speech and there won’t be any tears. Promise.

I studied alongside some incredible people, two of those became some of my best friends but they also helped me develop my style, understand different cultural approaches which helped develop me for the better. So, Lisa Duygu thank you for teaching me to look at every angle, to be more patient and to believe in myself. Nadia Volaki thank you for teaching me to be more bold, to take chances and to believe in myself. We made it. We did it. We are Masters!

Nadia, Lisa and myself!

 

The more private, but not any smaller in size, thank you’s must go to my supportive Grandparents, Mother and Boyfriend. Unwavering support that made the world of difference whilst there were so many demands on my time. Thank you. I did it!
