Svonne's Story

After being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and ME, Svonne's life took an unexpected turn when her illness worsened, limiting her ability to engage in everyday activities. Determined not to let this define her, she sought a meaningful pursuit that could be done from home. This quest led her to Centre of Excellence, an online learning platform offering an array of fascinating courses. "I didn't want to sit idle," Svonne recalls, "I wanted to work my brain."

After some deliberation, Svonne chose a diverse mix of courses to get stuck into. From the PTSD Awareness Diploma Course to the Creative Writing Diploma Course, each course she undertook served a unique purpose. The PTSD Awareness course held a personal significance, as it offered insights into her husband’s condition. "Understanding his PTSD and finding ways to help him became a priority for me," she explains.

Empowerment Through Learning

Svonne's experience with Centre of Excellence is a shining example of empowerment through education. Rigid schedules did not confine her studies; instead, she enjoyed the flexibility to learn at her own pace. "The flexibility of it all is what I love the most," she shares. "Some days are harder than others, but I can always come back to my studies when I feel able."

Her journey with Centre of Excellence is marked by an array of courses that reflect her diverse interests and aspirations. From novel and romance writing to more niche areas like calligraphy and mobile photography, Svonne has embraced the broad spectrum of learning. "The courses I've completed have sparked a new passion," she says. "They've not just been educational, but a source of joy and a means to challenge myself."

A Beacon of Hope and Inspiration

Svonne's story goes beyond personal development; it's about overcoming adversity. "It has massively helped my mental health," she asserts. The courses provided her with tools to help her husband and fuelled her dream of becoming an author. "I'm currently working on my book, and the writing courses have been invaluable," she shares excitedly.

Her advice to others echoes her own experience: "Don't just think about it, Do It! You won't regret it."
