"Do what makes you happy", says USW graduate Lucy

Lucy Newton

"It's hard to believe that 10 years ago, I was one of the young adults picking my A Levels up, absolutely terrified about what the future held!

I was never ‘traditionally academic’. When I told people I would study Fashion Promotion at the University of South Wales, it was often met with a smirk. It was followed by, "well, what exactly will you do with that?"

So, what did I do with my degree? I moved to a brand-new city, fell in love, never moved home, fell into the world of digital marketing and married my university sweetheart.

Moral of the story? Do what makes you happy."
