I would say securing my place in University and then securing this job. Both gave me such a confidence boost and a real sense of direction in life. At university I met some incredible people, I learnt and experienced things both academically and outside of studying that I will benefit from for life.
Securing this job really gave me a confidence boost and made me realise that I have a career ahead of me. I have to highlight that during studying I really couldn’t help questioning all the long days, late nights, and securing this job made me realise that it was all worth it!
