Start of a college life

My daughter Aqeelah started her college education today with a Foundation Programme leading to a medical degree at MSU.I can see the pressure is huge on her to perform well. Any slack in any subjects would jeopardize her chances to pursue her degree. I have tried to explain that to her repeatedly so as to make her realise the importance of it all. I hope she can cope with it and we are here to support every step of the way.

We made the decision TOO SOON. Read the newspaper report below.
