I was employed as an IT Technician at a university in Glasgow, when I made the decision to change my career and study Web Development and Interactive Media at Ayrshire College.The college course included design and development technologies used in the web industry and how to plan projects that utilise these tools.
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.
When I was at college I set myself the following goals; pass my course, learn to drive, learn to ski and get a job. By the following August my list was nearly completed; qualifications – check, passed my driving test – check, got a job – check. Last on list was learn to ski – French Alps here I come!
