“My life today couldn’t be more different"

Last year Sharon passed her Level 2 VTCT Nail technology course and this year she’s studying for her VTCT Level 3 at Abingdon & Witney College but it’s taken a lot to reach this point and she has faced many trials and tribulations to get where she is today.

Three years ago, Sharon was battling severe depression and an overwhelming lack of self-confidence that made every day a tremendous struggle. She could barely leave the house and her husband had to give up his job in order to care for her and keep her safe from herself. Then Sharon made the decision to get her life back on track. Slowly but surely Sharon built up her confidence and realised she could believe in herself. She took on a VTCT course in nails and with the help of her tutor, her friends on the course and her husband, has overcome her demons.      

“My life today couldn’t be more different; I won an award last year for ‘Learner Who Changed Their Life Through Learning’ for which I had to go to London. I had my husband one side of me and Keeley, my tutor, on the other side of me and it was a wonderful day”
