Undiagnosed dyslexia at school, coupled with problems at home, meant Daniel left college with one AS-level and a GCSE. Haunted by a former teacher’s comments that university was out of his reach, he believed he’d reached his potential and began full-time work, but was always unfulfilled. Having suffered a nervous breakdown in 2003, he yearned for more in his life, and when a friend suggested he apply to university, he did. Daniel is currently in the first year of a Psychology degree at Staffordshire University, and achieving top marks in his assignments.

Daniel chose to study Psychology due to personal experience, hoping he could use his qualification to help others. He is currently transferring his skills to voluntary work for St John Ambulance as a trainer, first aider and youth worker, as well as working with Staffordshire Youth Offending Team. “I know I have a lot to learn and I hope that I can give back what I have been so fortunate to receive,” smiled Daniel.
