Let’s set the scene…
Growing up is like a roller-coaster. There are highs and there are lows, and this was most certainly the case for me.
I grew up in a Village on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon. From the kitchen window you can see the moors and I have always loved being able to amble out of bed and go for a potter on the moors or pop in the car and be on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Country in under half an hour. As a family we always went out on day trips and I have very fond memories of my childhood.
I went to the local Primary School up until I was old enough to go to the local Comprehensive for ‘big school’. During these years my main priorities were finding out what the most recent gossip was and boys. Needless to say, education was not on the top of my priority list.
Somehow, with a huge amount of support and guidance from my teachers I managed to get ‘the grades’.
After leaving Secondary School I went on to study Psychology at Exeter University. After a few bumps along the way I managed to complete my degree in May 2011 and was as happy as pie having a loving boyfriend, lots of great friends and looking forward to building a new life in London.
To celebrate finishing my degree, my boyfriend and I decided to take a trip of a lifetime to Grenada in the Caribbean.
This is when my life would change forever…
