     I was a full-time mum,
     but my children are
  now teenagers so I decided
  to follow my dream of
becoming a car mechanic.
     Despite being the only
woman on this course I have the
 respect of my fellow students
- the College makes it easy
   for women to study here.

       I work but I like
          to take evening
  classes and
      learn new things.
  I love travelling and
     French is a language
  that interests me.
  It’s great to have
           access to
  evening classes
      as it means I can
  come here after work
  to continue learning
  a subject that really
         interests me.
