Data from 2017 leavers published in 2018.
I didn't have any confidence at all. Now I feel like I can do anything. I didn't think I could get into university, but thanks to my mentor I did.
It gives me ideas about what I want to do in the future, facing my fears.
Being able to be myself, being able to get help and not being ashamed to ask for it. Being able to relax and be confident.
