My dream career from nothing?
In 2009, before I even knew anything about the Secret, I was on holiday in Cuba and awaiting results from my degree. I kept thinking over and over that I had failed, turns out that when I got my results, I had failed. At first I was upset and gutted but then I realised that it wasn’t the end of the world and that I had other options. I had plans to become a primary school teacher, so I decided that when I got home I would find out what my options were, get as much experience in schools as possible and for now just enjoy my holiday and to never think about the failure again.
When I got home I found out that I could resit a couple of modules and as long as I could pass them by September I would be allowed to graduate in December. So I set to work trying to re-write a dissertation. First time I did it and would’ve failed it again but then with determination and knowing that I was going to graduate that year and pass this dissertation I sat up for 24 hours and did it.
That’s not all however, I decided that I was going to apply for a Student Associates Scheme. When I went for the interview, they told me that they would allow me on the course but not in a primary placement, in a secondary placement, and in RE for some strange reason. I decided to take this offer as I thought that it would go alongside my primary placement and enhance my application. When I started in RE though I started thinking that this was for me.
I am now halfway through my PGCE RE course.
It was not until after reading The Secret did I realise that I had asked for this and the universe had given me a great opportunity to find something that I love and that I feel passionate about.
I have now started to re-read the Secret and apply it to my life!
