Today marks the end of my undergraduate studies as I was formally presented with my First Class degree certificate at the graduation ceremony in Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall. With hundreds of other graduands, I collected my award shaking the hand of the Vice-Chancellor in a very well organised ceremony which was both a solemn celebration and direct and to the point. It’s a sign really of the kind of dynamic university that Nottingham Trent is compared to my previous ‘red-brick’ university experience I had in the 90s.
It has been a long four years of hard work, but it has all been worth it. Today’s been a brilliant celebration from start to finish and even better sharing it with my brilliant fiancée Linz, who’s been a great inspiration and support; and my parents who have been solid support in my life.
So now I continue developing my professional career at Esendex where I’m already learning a heck of a lot of good stuff from good people. Off for a curry to celebrate now. Maybe a tip of the hat to the ‘Curry Mile’ in Selly Oak maybe? I think I deserve it.
[Edit] I’ve done a quick splice job on the online version of the graduation video from Nottingham Trent University’s website to capture the moment.
