“Life while studying at LSBU was very hectic! When I wasn’t in lectures I was working one of 3 jobs; either as a Student Ambassador for LSBU; as a dance teacher; or as a Market Researcher. In some ways, this was very challenging, but in other ways, it was great because it taught me to be really disciplined with my time.”
