Clearing is now open - Amaranta shares her story transcript

Audio description
In my head the whole way through college the whole way through school I wanted to be a teacher, I wanted to do Spanish and French at uni and then I started having these doubts, and I was like I don't want to do this anymore, like I don't want to be a teacher, what else can I do if I do a languages degree? And I've always had this love for singing and I did music tech at college and I just wanted to combine the two and it was a bit late for me at this point to then apply through UCAS for loads of different courses, so I was looking for courses where you could apply through Clearing, there were a few, but the Solent course just completely stuck out for me - It was the perfect thing for me that I wanted to do. The Clearing process was absolutely amazing. Literally, on results day I called the Clearing hotline, I spoke to a really friendly person I'm pretty sure she was a student actually who was helping out and she was so polite. She got me through it so quickly, so easily, and then I had no doubts from that point onwards I wanted to go here. I have no regrets and I just know now for sure that this is exactly what I want to do as a career.
