Danika can also be exceptionally proud of achieving 100% attendance throughout her time at the Academy. She said, “I am absolutely buzzing. I am particularly proud of my Biology grade as it was very hard. I’m really overwhelmed as I didn’t think I would get into medical school. I can’t wait to start my dream rewarding career helping people.” Danika and her sister are the first generation in their family to go to university, with her sister already pursuing a medical career studying to be a midwife.
