A huge thank you to this platform, seeing all the motivational posts helped me a lot throughout the past two years and all the blog posts especially from those who went through the graduate route really pushed me to keep going and not give up!! After finishing university and not getting in to finally getting two offers at graduate level this year. I’m so overwhelmed with happiness and really thankful to this platform and everyone who is affiliated with it .
