An elated Shennell sent me the feature photo of her graduation on 21 November 2017. The smile says it all.
I first met Shennell on Growing Talent 5 over two years ago. She had left university due to peer pressure, amongst other things, just one term short of completing.
Her self-esteem was low and she couldn’t see which direction to go in. Gradually her confidence began to Grow through the workshops, mentoring and positive peer/employer support. She completed Growing Talent and joined Iron Mountain a document management organisation. After a few months she applied for and secured a front of house role with Portico.
Completing her degree was always in the background. Eventually she chose to leave Portico to return to uni – but life doesn’t always go to plan. She worked for various organisations and looked at some training in marketing before finally returning to uni this year.
Shennell is an amazing role model for never giving up. I am so proud of her achievements and look forward to the next chapter………..
