After three years of hard work at East Coast Media (part of the Grimsby Institute), graduation day had finally arrived and I was about to become Lindsay Cowie, BA (sounds ace!) I had been looking forward to this day for a whole year, ever since I attended the previous year's ceremony with the Grimsby Telegraph as a part of my work experience. Seeing the graduates walk across the stage in their robes, collecting their qualifications was so inspirational; I found it very motivational as I wanted to achieve the best grade I could so I could feel just as proud on my day.

Of course, there was another reason why I was so nervous - I was the recipient of this year's Student of the Year award!!! That was it, my hard work had paid off! Luckily I didn't have to make a speech, but I did receive a fab trophy that has my name engraved into it and is stood in the Grimsby Institutes' HE Office (I went to see it last time I visited college - is that sad?!) It really did put the icing on the cake on this fantastic day!
