From Barmaid to Arts Graduate: my journey

11/7/2013 12:20:00 PM

by Karen Laura-lee-Lee Wilson


As a Care Leaver, I have been invited to contribute a 7,000 word essay about my how I achieved an Arts degree in 1967 despite opposition from family and other obstacles placed in my path.

Progress: I am about two thirds through  writing the the first draft of the essay.  The work is still in a rough draft and requires more editing.I hope to have it completed by the end of this month.  Fortunately my deadline has been extended to 31 January.  My chapter will form part of a collection of writing from other care leavers. Included into the collection will be tips for them regarding use of time, focussing on subjects, avoiding too much  socialising  and other matters.
