Julianne Smedley

Foundation Degree


"I didn't think I was going to be able to do a degree. I always doubted my ability until I spoke to Tracey Canham. When she told me that I was more than capable of doing it that was it, decision made! At times it has been hard juggling work, home life and studying but I am determined that I will do this. Then just when I think I have the balance right I decide to train for a marathon. I think I thrive on challenges."
