Graduation in the long-game

Pam C

 

Twelve years ago Pam came off her motorbike in a severe accident. Experiencing a severe traumatic brain injury as a result of the accident, Pam was told that she wouldn't be able to complete her degree despite only being four subjects short.

 

"It took eight and a half years before I could read and retain some of what I was reading. I have worked my brain in various ways such as daily crosswords, and having a personal trainer to enable my damaged muscles to work again", Pam recalled.

 

When Pam finally managed to return to university three years ago she had to complete six subjects and a 5,000 word thesis.

 

This past month Pam celebrated her graduation with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Ancient History, Greece, Rome and Late Antiquity - completing her last subjects in distinction. Quite an achievement for someone how has had to overcome so much to finally achieve her degree.

 

Congratulations Pam!
