Eloise Maltby, who completed her studies at the University of Worcester during the lockdown, achieved her honours degree in LLB law with criminology.
Despite some personal challenges during her first two years, Eloise said she was “beyond proud of herself.
“It is such a cliché, but hard work and determination, with a bit of resilience thrown in for good measure, really do pay off,” said the 21-year-old.
Eloise, who hopes to become a fully qualified solicitor, is now in the process of completing her legal practice course and LLM (master of laws) in Birmingham.
