Career Path: Learning Technology Consultant, Virtual College

I started looking into Policing jobs after graduation, however due medical reasons this career path wasn't meant to be. This situation inspired me into other career paths and it turns out that it was the best thing that happened to me as led to the stage I am now, and I wouldn't change it.
