I was in the first year of the bursary scheme, having applied in 2004, and I graduated from the University of Gloucestershire in 2008 with a 2:1 in Marketing Management and Sociology. The Magnolia Incentive has been a brilliant support to me, and I am really grateful for the help they have been able to offer me. As well as the financial support provided by the scheme, my mentors Martin and Mandy have helped me with organising a work experience placement for me in London, attempting to teach me to water ski (!), completing obstacle courses, and numerous breakfasts, dinners, drinks and catch ups.

I think that the mentoring side of the scheme has really helped me, as it has given me someone who I can always talk to about any issue that is affecting me, and since graduating from university I have had numerous discussions with Martin and Mandy about my career and what I want to be "doing with my life". It's great to know that the mentoring side of the scheme hasn't stopped since I finished university. I really hope the Magnolia Incentive has the opportunity to grow, and expand, as I know this is something that can offer support and guidance, and be of benefit to so many young people. | Martin Gill 07983 478571 | Mandy Parker 07834 771818
