"I'm a mature student with a young heart. At the moment I am in the foundation year to shape up and get the tools I need to become a computer scientist. I knew about Goldsmiths because some of my friends who were at the university already told me the wonders of studying here.
I was thinking about coming back to education for some time, and after attending an open day and having a chat with the Computing Department I was convinced I wanted to study here. Being at Goldsmiths has been a great experience and a rollercoaster of emotions. I've met good friends, and been given the opportunity to get involved as a Department Student Co-ordinator, representing the student body to both the department itself and to Goldsmiths. Hopefully I am a bridge for better understanding between the two sides.
My tutors have given me many gifts to be thankful for, such as logical thinking and understanding computing behaviour and a hunger for research. They've also provided me with a space to create my own personal and creative ways to develop my ideas, which has allowed me to walk my own path.
Studying at Goldsmiths has given me the ultimate gift; a dream of an amazing future and a second opportunity in life to become the person I want to be."
