I graduate from university this year- I hated childhood and everything associated with it but I'd rather not go into details- I hated uni and the course but I felt I had to finish the three years because otherwise I would be labelled "uneducated". Now that freedom is almost near in sight- I want to forget everything, just change name so I can try and forget everyone and everything that happened and put it in the past- I have planned this for almost three years now -this isn't just impulsive whim-from what I'll be called down to the job I will get when I graduate until I get my immigration visa arrives and even the plans I will make when I reach my destination country.
My issue is: Should I change my name before I leave my home country or after I reach my new country?
One factor also which is swaying me to do it before then is that my uni does not give out replacement degree certificates for name changes- they say just show proof of deed poll with original degree certificate. I don't want to remember old name whenever I apply for a job in my new country. I wasted three years of my life on this degree it might as well come in useful sometime.
I'd appreciate any helpful opinions. Thanks.
Changing name and moving country to start a new life.
