So 9 years ago when I came over to England as a fresh faced 18 year-old I made my dad a promise. That promise was that I would get a degree. Today I’m incredibly proud to have kept that promise!! I woke up this morning to an email that I had achieved a 2.1(had to google what that meant) on my business management degree through @theopenuniversity. There’s been some very tough periods trying to keep my promise with touring, life events, motivation and a lack of understanding with what the promise was actually about. I can honestly say that this is one of my proudest achievements! Coachi, you can have a Bells now! 🥃 Now for a big 2020 season and onto a MBA 🏏 📚 #characterovercoverdrives #batsbeforebooks #promisekept
