Choose your level of study
One of my proudest moments was when I completed a course called Digital Story Telling. This was a subject I knew nothing about and had no previous experience in, so I was terrified. However, I learnt to produce, film and edit a short movie. It brought me so far out of my comfort zone but really showed me I can do so much. I had great support and it gave me new confidence and skills in new software I would otherwise never have tried.
