My foster carers had a massive impact on my education. When I first moved in with them I was attending a very disruptive school in special measures and looking at U’s for my GCSE’s. They moved house for me to go to a better school and supported and believed in me when nobody else did. They encouraged me to believe in myself and through their help and my determination I left school with 14 A*-C Grades.
