Special thanks was given to Ms Pitt’s family and particularly her mother, Kimeka Wilson, of whom Ms Pitt stated: “This is just as much your accomplishment as it is mine.”

She said: “Though I speak on my journey as if it was a smooth sailing experience, success did not come easy to me. There were many trials and tribulations along the way, from the stress, exam anxiety, countless hours of studying, and each year having to face the uncertainty of whether I would be returning to England to continue my studies due to financial hardships.

“Through it all I kept the end in view, and as a result of determination, hard work and sacrifices I stand today as a true testament that anyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve great things.”
