“I loved my time at Hertfordshire, I honestly don’t think I’d be playing professional Netball now if it wasn’t for the support I received whilst being involved in the University of Hertfordshire’s scholarship programme. It not only allowed me to pursue my academic career, but it also pushed me in my sports one too and captaining the team to become the first University of Hertfordshire performance team to win back-to-back national titles whilst there wasn’t too bad either!”
