Listen to Ulster University student Dr Ava Brown as she talks about her story so far.

During Covid there were so many pressures on me, I literally came close to quitting my course, and then I had a discussion with my lecturer Steven Pollard, and he was like absolutely not, let’s figure this out.

And I must say that was such a comforting thing for me to hear, because it felt like I couldn’t cope, and just the attitude of we got this, we’ve got you, let us sit down together and try to find a way to make sure that everybody matters and everybody is included in the way we pivot.
