- Rachel faced bullying in the years before starting her degree, and at one stage she nearly dropped out of university entirely

A young mum identified as Rachel Campey has a lot to be grateful after graduating with a degree in psychology at age 21. Campey who hails from Cross Gates, England had to drop out of school at age 14 after she got pregnant, however, she never gave up on her dreams.

Recently, the hardworking single mother bagged a degree with her daughter by her side. It was gathered that Campey studied at Leeds Trinity University where she bagged a degree in counselling psychology Wednesday, December 4.

Metro UK reports that Rachel revealed that she struggled with anxiety and the stress of balancing a degree, job and the responsibilities of being a single mother for three years – but her daughter has been her inspiration.

Now, Rachel wants to encourage other single parents to chase their dreams and push their own expectations for themselves. ‘If you’re a young parent and you’ve suffered with mental health issues, it doesn’t mean the end of your goals. You can still work towards them whenever you’re ready,’ she says.
