Education. Mature student writing on paper. Laptop open

I know why you are here! Let me tell you, it’s not easy, not at all. I had your same doubts. I felt lost in my life and I didn’t know what to expect for my future. If that wasn’t enough, I really did not like my job but I could not get out of it, I was stuck. This is my Mature Student Blog, hopefully it can help you!

I had to deal with those questions as well when I started University at 26 with plenty of uncertainties. As soon as I overcame the fear of starting late, I had to face many others. Is it too late? Will I find a job? Am I going to be successful? It doesn’t matter now, I made it, I have changed my life!

I graduated at 30 years old in International Business and Finance, I loved it. Few months later I got a graduate job for a multinational company, right in the middle of un unprecedented economic crisis. Moreover, my starting salary was already better than my previous job in hospitality.

What was I doing before starting University? I was stuck in a job that I didn’t like and complaining to myself everyday. Can you imagine living your entire life doing a job you don’t like? Or accepting any job without ambitions? I could not do that anymore.

I felt undervalued and not appreciated. However, in my head I knew I was worth more than that, much more. All I needed was just a starting point. My ambitions were the fuel of my mature student journey. I won’t bore you with my story now, if you want to know more about it you can find it here: “My Story”.
