In the lead-up to the Kilwinning Campus graduations we will unveil our graduation prizewinners. At the Kilwinning graduations, there are 10 recipients in total.
Last up is Kenzie Harley, HND Computer Science, who is receiving the Outstanding Achievement Award.
I was a student at St. Matthew’s Academy before I came to college. While I was there, they introduced Digital Media Computing which I was really interested in. I took the subject and it’s led me further into Computing Science.
I had no fears about coming straight from school. I thought college would be quite similar to school life.
The course covered a lot of coding. We were tasked with creating databases, web programming, and making small Android games. It was great to be able to put my own twist on the projects we were assigned.
I’ve made a lot of friends here at Ayrshire College. The course has also allowed me to finally believe in myself and my abilities. I feel very proud of myself for winning this award.
The long-term goal is to gain employment abroad, but first I need to finish my degree at the University of the West of Scotland!
