            1972-1975, Certificate in Education

            When I was there it was Worcester College of Education. There were only six colleges of education where i could study Needlework without cookery. My cookery lessons at school were divorced from my home and I really didn't want to teach cookery. So having found six which included Elizabeth Gaskell I held a pin over the map and it stopped over Worcester. I applied and crossed my fingers behind my back as I convinced the interviewers that I felt it was the best place for me. Truly, it was somewhere where I knew noone so my foster family and their friends would not see or interfere with me. I loved what i saw in Worcester. The river with it's bridges were so romantic. Our Kays catalogue came from there. So did our sauce though i couldn't find any tamarind trees when i went there and deduced that they'd brought the recipe back from the Caribbean. I loved the idea of expensive pots, china, breakable yet nice things. for 3 years all presents came from the Worcester,I never kept any for myself. No buses at evenings and none after 2 on Sundays were a bit of a bind but i got used to it. It was a great place to study with its rural education course which drew students from all over the world. It was fun at times though being only one of a handful of black students i had some not very pleasant experiences too. i made some good friends and though i regret not living with them in Birmingham I do bump into some of them at times. I was in digs for two years. The first, down by the river, a long lonely walk at nights but a great experience during the day. The other digs was at Bromyard road with a loving caring family. The third year was on site but i was hardly there at weekends. Worcester is a lovely town with some quite interesting places of interest. Fitting in was difficult. They didn't like strangers and would point to me as 'the bogey' if their children were misbehaving. teaching practice including kids digging me with pins to see if i had red blood but the lecturers helped me through those difficulties. i started Worcester after 9 years 'under care' and an extremely difficult previous summer. The lecturers were kind, encouraging and pulled out the best in me. I went to see a Senior lecturer whenever i needed to talk. They tried hard to get me a grant to stay on for a degree in Art but failed. They did get me a grant for 'young orphan girls wanting to teach needlework though. I learnt a lot in Worcester. the brochure claimed that the Needlework and Woodwork Departments were linked. They were if we consider walking through one to get to the other, a link but by smiling sweetly at the men they helped to frame our pictures. We worked well with other departments too for example the English Department decided to put on 'measure for measure' and invited us to make the costumes. what a hoot. I had to go to a convent to ask Sister Mary to show me how she made her habit. I'll never forget the giggling nunshowing us where the pins were hidden. we of course used velcro. The Validictory Ball was great with Errol Brown singing 'You sexy thing whilst my foster daughter danced with him. she then became an internationally known singer and writer. Film nights were great. we went to see the birds and the bees and were surprised when it was really about birds and bees. 3 years of dancing to pop music didn't harm me. Culture shock was part and parcel of the whole experience. Being chased by biology students to test my hair was quite funny. If i wanted to be around black women I had to go to hospital. I matured very quickly in Worcester.

            2012-2015, Bachelor's Degree

            Over the course of my studies, the University of Worcester has pro-actively developed itself into an excellent place of education despite its recent establishment. The tutors are all extremely knowledgeable in their fields, and there is great opportunity for hands-on experience. The entire university has a fantastically challenging yet supportive atmosphere, particularly supportive of disabled students which was a huge relief to me as I ran into physical difficulties in the middle of my final year of study. At another university, this setback may have derailed my degree entirely, but I feel more confident than ever with the help of the wonderful staff at Worcester.

            I thoroughly enjoyed completing by degree here, the support of the Performing Arts and of English Literature was brilliant. The atmosphere of the campus, though this has grown significantly since my graduation was wonderful, a real home from home.
