How was your time at GCU? 

I chose to study at GCU because I wanted to do International Project Management and it is the best course in the UK which was handy because I happened to live in Glasgow at the time.

How has your career progressed since GCU? 

I worked my way up the corporate ladder, first as a Graduate Project Manager and then all the way up to Senior Project and Programme Manager before changing course and becoming a leather accessories designer. 

What are your words of wisdom? 

Don't be afraid to change course whilst you are young. It's normal to end up doing something that has nothing to do with your original degree or with what you wanted to be when you first went to university.
