My Career Goal

Hi everyone, today I am going to be talking to you about my career goal. I have been thinking a lot recently about what I want to do with my future, I am enjoying the job I am in now but I know it's not something I want to do for life. I want a real career.
Something I have wanted to do for years is become a midwife. I remember when I was in school I was having a meeting about my poor attendance and the woman taking the meeting asked me what I wanted to do in my future, I told her I wanted to be a midwife and she just laughed and told me that would never happen. 
Since then I have never thought I could go into that career until recently. I was talking with a colleague at work about careers and I said I wanted to be a midwife but I haven't got the right GCSE's to do so. That was when she told me about access courses so I came home and found they have an access course to health in my local college. It even says on the site that you can progress to midwifery from this course. I applied straight away and I am now waiting to hear back from the college with a date to go in speak to them about the course.
I am unsure whether or not I will get onto the course this year as my GCSE's were so poor, if I do get refused I will hopefully redo my GCSE's then apply again next year.
After this course my aim is to go to University and study Midwifery.
I am not going to give up on this dream and I hope that in 5 years time I can look back at this post and smile to myself and think 'yes I achieved that.' but for now my focus is to get into college and take it from there!

Thanks for reading
