My name is Charlotte and I took part in the Health and Care Academy in 2020. Due to the pandemic, work experience and ways to explore my future choices were limited until I discovered the academy. I knew I was interested in a healthcare profession and when I was able to speak to a variety of different healthcare professionals, I discovered my passion for midwifery.

The academy helped me in many different ways such as giving me a better understanding of the career I want to do, understanding what is involved in that career and providing me with revision skills and helping me build a personal statement. The skills I learnt during the academy gave me confidence when applying to university and having interviews.

I have just finished my A levels and got what I needed to go to university in September to study midwifery. I am very excited to start my journey in becoming a midwife and I am very thankful to everyone in the Health and Care Academy for supporting me and helping me decide my future career.
