It’s the second week back to school and things are starting to settle down. This week brought happiness and some disappointment as Oxbridge applicants received their results.

I was one of the disappointed ones, but one thing I want to make clear about being an Oxbridge “reject” is that it won’t deter me. I gave it a shot and a tried my best, which really is all I can do. I am so happy for the girls who got offers, you have definitely earned it! For those of us that didn’t that is not going to hold us back; we are all going to amazing universities and are all amazing women. A university does not dictate the direction your life takes – you do.

While I’m here I’d also like to say a massive congratulations to everyone receiving university offers at the moment, I’ve heard they are flooding in thick and fast!
