About Me

Hi my name is Raeesah (Racer) and I’m a 3rd year Biomedical Science student. 

The year I started University in 2011, I was part of the last group of students paying the £3(something) thousand. Growing up I always thought I wanted to do Medicine, however, during my A ‘levels I decided Medicine was not for me. I was getting quite stressed out and I was forgetting how much fun it was to learn. So I changed to Neuroscience. I had always wanted to go to University, so when I did not get into my firm or insurance choices to study Neuroscience I opted to do Biomedical Science because I've always enjoyed science. Even though I joined Greenwich via Clearing, I’m so glad I’m here! 

As you can see I am currently a blogger for Greenwich and I hope to share my University and general life experiences with you.   

First year was a little bit hard not educationally but socially. Meeting new people, making friends isn't really my forte but I tried my best. Second year was a lot more fun socially but hard academically. Boy does second year slap the knowledge on ya! We had course works, tests, assessments, everything due left, right and centre. By the end of it I was happy I survived! 

And now, the third year is upon me! I really cannot believe how quickly these two years have gone by. I’m still not entirely sure what I would like to do once I finish my degree, I know that I am definitely on the right path. 

I am going to end with this: “An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus and keep aiming.”
