I believe anything is possible

Elina has overcome a variety of obstacles to pass her exams with flying colours while achieving a Grade 5 in practical musicianship.

Elina - UWE Bristol student

Elina was always fascinated about the human mind and passionate about finding out how others solve problems. So a degree course in Psychology seemed the logical thing to do. Despite being disabled – she was born blind – and other challenging situations, Elina has excelled herself. Parallel to studying for her degree, Elina pursued her love for music and wants to use this combination in a career in music therapy.

Supportive atmosphere

Elina says, “What I enjoy most about UWE Bristol is the positive and supportive atmosphere created by everyone, from the disability advisers to the academic staff. This makes me feel included and welcome.”

Plans for the future

Elina’s future plans include, “a counselling or research doctorate and to pass knowledge and understanding as well as peaceful thinking to as many people as possible.”
