After almost two decades as an air hostess with BA, I was ready for a new challenge. I loved travelling, but commuting to Heathrow definitely has a shelf life! So, when the opportunity to take voluntary redundancy came up, I grabbed it. I was so lucky to get the scholarship, particularly as I found studying again challenging at first. It let me focus on studying instead of having to work too.
