Nazmine is a positive success!

Dated: 14 December 2020

This month we continue to celebrate some of our very deserving students who have been nominated for (and won) the Jack Petchey Foundation award.
Nazmine was nominated by Lisa Fry, our Student Progress Manager and Wellness Coordinator, who said "Nazmine  is a fine example of a young person who is resilient and strives to do her best, despite difficult personal circumstances and living a long distance from College. She is one of the most thoughtful students I have worked with and her positive mindset is an example to us all. Her mantra of ‘rejection to redirection’, her passion for an equal playing field and her recent increase in confidence has really impressed me."
Nazmine had this say... 
"What inspires me to be positive is that I am always striving to become a better version of myself and wanting to make a difference. I realise that even though life will at times be challenging - things will eventually pass, even if it may not feel like it in the moment. And that nothing worthwhile in life comes easy, there will always be trials and tribulations - but in the end, it will be worth it.
Challenging times like now are good in a sense as they have made us appreciate the little things in life and be grateful for what we have. What drives my optimism and resilience are my goals, as I have learnt that a positive and healthy mindset is just as important as your academic ability in terms of success and is a significant factor in being able to reach your full potential.
Life at Woodhouse has been refreshing and enjoyable. As someone who has moved around a lot and being used to new and different experiences, my experience at Woodhouse has been like no other. It’s nice to meet like-minded people who share common interests and goals. I have made some great friends and I am very thankful for the support systems in place at college
Next year I plan to take a gap year to do voluntary work, as I enjoy helping others and want to give back to my community - especially in a time like this. As for university... I’m not sure of my plans yet, but whatever path I decide to take I will put my very best effort in regardless.
I was surprised to find out that I was nominated for a Jack Petchey but I’m delighted to be awarded this. It’s nice knowing that there are people who notice the adversities people go through and are there for them. I hope having foundations like JPF motivates others going through hardship to stay strong and succeed.
I will be spending the award money on the college’s student services, specifically the well-being services, to give back and as a thank you. The support I've received was a significant factor in my progress, not only academically but in general, and I feel like it would be beneficial to others at college who also need support."
Motivated, positive and generous... we think Nazmine will go far and congratulate her on the award and her personal growth. She truly embodies Woodhouse values and the Jack Petchey ethos - "If you think you can, you can!"
