‘It was emotional, most especially after battling with anxiety, the stress of balancing a degree, responsibilities of being a mom and getting a job.’

‘I saw Lily-rose’s face as I put my cap and gown on when preparing for the ceremony and it just made me feel so worthwhile. I felt a lot of completion throughout the day and I felt an overwhelming love and pride from my family, my daughter and from myself.’ Ms. Campey said in excitement while speaking to the PA News Agency.

She equally revealed that her daughter, 6, smiled all day long through the ceremony despite being overawed at the initial.

Ms. Campey continued: ‘When I was writing my dissertation, she was doing her homework at the side of me, so she gets how long a process it has been. While my surname was accidentally pronounced wrongly when walking onto the stage to collect my degree, I heard her yelling out ‘That’s my mummy.’

Ms. Campey has, however, been nominated for the 2020 Yorkshire Choice Awards. She hopes to continue studying or perhaps become a public speaker. Presently, she’s an ambassador for an NHS Organization supporting young people and professionals, MindMate having earned a third-class degree.
