#TheGallery Youth


Not joined in for a while so time to have a go! This is me back in 1993 at my graduation from Swansea University having just scraped a 2.1 in Geography:


I look so pleased with myself! Three years of hard work had paid off and I was going to be starting an MA at Leeds University in Human Geography in the autumn. University was a great experience with not only studying geography, geology and Italian in my first year but taking up rugby too! Not sure I have really used my degrees since then as I fell into working in IT but a fascinating subject to study. The fact I got field trips to Portsmouth & Tunisia and a term in Paris were definite bonuses.


Who knows if my children will follow in my footsteps. I was lucky to go before tuition fees went through the roof. Such a shame if future generations are priced out of university. This was my amazing 21st birthday cake which celebrated my love of rugby and the university:



  1. what fantastic pictures! i love the smile on your face or was that just relief? x

  2. Lovely memories you look so proud of yourself and rightly so, although you look way too girly to play rugby!

  3. Great pictures. I can't wait to have pictures of me graduating. Next year, hopefully!

  4. lol I was a big bad 2nd row too ;-)


I love it when people leave a message
