"Studying at an institute of higher education is not on the cards for everyone. I trained as a social and healthcare worker when I was 19 years old and now I have a master's degree in Human Resource Management. That meant I had a different background to many others on my programme, but that only creates positive input if you dare to use your experience and are proud of not taking the traditional route," says Lea Riis Jensen.
