Natalie wasn’t sure whether she would fit in at university, as she lives at home while she studies and enjoys spending time with her family.
However, this hasn’t been the case… after changing her subject area, Natalie is flourishing studying marketing, and having finished second year, she is moving on to a year-long placement at Cross Country Rail.
