    I went to Belmont Academy – I was a conscientious student and achieved good exam results and headed straight to university but I only stayed six months – I didn’t like it. I just didn’t know what I wanted to do. I got a job in Domino’s Pizza and was supervisor there for about five years. Then I changed direction completely and worked for Spark of Genius who cared for children. However five years on I knew that care was not for me either.
