Nyomi’s partner had a long term illness and when she had a child she became depressed and felt locked in a spiral of despair.

Encouraged by her health visitor, she attended a course at college. She felt accepted for who she was and a year later has begun studying a Podiatry degree. Now her partner is also beginning to study. Together they want to improve their lives and provide for their daughter.


FE gave me such a sense of belonging.

It’s been amazing.

I’ve made people proud and I’ve made myself proud.


Watch Naomi tell her story of how FE opened the door to new experiences and a better life.
