The Paragraph

A year in a paragraph.

This year has been challenging to say the least. I finished a busy term at SOAS completing a hectic month of exams and began the summer researching my dissertation for my Masters. I took a break from my studies to volunteer on a summer camp for young people, but was involved in a serious car accident on the journey there. I suffered multiple injuries, underwent three separate operations, and initially was unable to walk. Thankfully the operations all went smoothly and with physiotherapy I was soon back on my feet again. There is still a long way to go before I’ll be back to full fitness, but in the meantime I’m making the most of an enforced rest and enjoying reading, writing and painting. The experience has taught me not to take things for granted, and has revealed the true value of a supportive family and friends. I am so glad to be here and celebrate with them this Christmas.
