Adults and young adults all over the country have received their grades over the last few weeks from what one might consider as one of the biggest turning points in the education system, where dreams come true, and that happens at university.

I recently graduated from the University of Westminster with a BA (Hons) degree in Journalism. It was a whirlwind but what an experience it was. There are highs and lows, of course, but what is essential to remember is that it is a fantastic achievement and parents all over the country are going through a very proud period as their child(ren) graduate. It is a moment where you say, “oh wow, I actually done it”, and wow does it go fast.

What makes education so worthwhile? One follows their passion and ambition, has the confidence to then take it to the next level and puts them self through a challenge of a lifetime at a university institution. It is such a beautiful thing when we set our hearts on something and we chase it, and using determination, hard work and talent…anything is possible. The world is our oyster, after all! Education and the formation of relevant connections in the field enable us to develop and grow into the individual we need to become.

Education indeed shapes a human being and provides a framework of life skills and intelligence that can be carried wherever one goes in this world. The world, undoubtedly, can be a cruel place and that is why with a foundation of skills in an area that is a dream career/goal, this really is all we need in life to get us to where we need to go; complemented with a positive and happy upbringing from our loved ones.

The need to stay positive in the modern day could not be more crucial as it is now, with the recent BREXIT news, much of the UK is left with moral panic. What will happen to our children and their futures? What about their children and the economy that surrounds them? Will the pay increase? Will we have to pay more taxes? All of these dark areas only create anxiety as we are left with unanswered questions. But what we need to remember the most is that education ought to be appreciated every single day as so many people in this world are deprived of it. There are people who would love to be educated but are poverty-stricken and declined the right to study and follow their dreams.

So let’s be grateful and together, celebrate the education system and the achievement of millions of graduates all over the world who reached their final hurdle of education and obtained a degree at university. God bless them all and TCE Global wishes them all the luck from our Lord for their future and for the future of our country.
