"I needed to improve my English and demonstrate my interest in eye medicine in order to get to study optometry at a London university. This work experience programme was my chance to do both. I had a nice English family that I am still friends with. I got a good IELTS result and I'm hoping to study Optometry at City University, London. I can't wait!"
