I was originally planning to go away to an Ontario University to complete my Bachelor`s Degree with my Fitness and Health Promotion Diploma from Sault College. This would normally take three years to complete. When I found out that I would be able to complete my Bachelor`s Degree in one year at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, I was ecstatic! This is a once-in-a-life-time opportunity to get out there and explore the world while getting my degree. There was no way I could let an amazing opportunity like this pass my by .
