#SeaChangeStories

Since I have been here at UKSA, I feel that my attitude has changed and I am feeling energised and positive about my future and am planning a career. What’s more, receiving an award for being an outstanding student in my first year of my BTEC here was amazing – it came as a complete surprise; I was ecstatic and excited.
