Pleased as pleased can be

The last couple of years have been very tricky for my younger daughter. She sort of lost her place in the world a bit, had some friends who weren't always making wise choices, made some bad decisions herself and had a tough time for a while. It really was like an explosion in a WTF factory, we never knew what was coming next.
People were very quick to judge and to write her off, but to her credit, she changed schools, her attitude changed tremendously and she got her self back on track.


Now she has 5 offers from universities, some really decent ones, I think Warwick is the highest ranking of her offers, definitely in the top 10 UK uni's but it is number 1 in the country in her chosen course.


Today she got an unconditional offer to study journalism at the university she really wants. 


I am just pleased that someone else can see her worth too

Fantastic news! And I know that they are very different, but this gives me hope, as my boy needs someone to see his worth too (and possibly a different school) xx

So well done! Takes great resiliency to overcome difficulties and switch schools as a teen.

Nota Bene said...

Well done indeed...kids can always surprise and delight!

Countryside Tales said...

That must be a relief after all you've been through together. I bet she feels on top of the world.

Lesley said...

Well done her. The only thing that could make it even more impressive would be if it was a Scottish university.

Helena said...

That showed the doubters. What a little trooper. Good on ya babes!

KV - all down to her :)

Gigi - thank you, she deserves it

LFBS - I am sure if they get the right school it makes a massive difference

Libs - I can see the finishing line...

A - finishing line....

LRH - I think it's her fellow students that will be living with her that will need the luck :)

LCM - oh can you hear the sound of freedom? for both of us obvs :)

Sonya - she/I have had the trickiest few years of life with all this malarkey

NB - indeed

CT - I think she is getting the fear now about leaving, her anxiety has switched from getting the grades to how will I survive!

Lesley - sadly not, she didn't apply to any of the Scottish universities as the one that she wanted for her course had her brother already in situ and she is determined to not be known as his sister!!!!

Lena - aw ta hen

jon - long time no see, hope all is well with you and yours, wasn't your beloved child becoming a vet? and the longest degree ever (with associated costs!!!)
