    Rashael Kelly found out she was pregnant when she was studying for her final year at A-level. Come results day, while holding her 12 day old baby Rasharn, she collected A*AAA.

    She has now recently graduated from Kings College London with a degree in Politics, Philosophy and Law and has accepted a training contract to become a solicitor.

    What an inspirational and empowering story.

    You can watch the interview with Rashael here.

    I remember a 18 year old Scottish lady on my Access to University course who had a little boy who was 3 years old so she had him when she was fifteen years old.

    She can from a very rough background and move from Scotland to England by herself with a young baby she also worked part time

    She got into University Of London and got a First Class Degree in Sociology

    I remember she was a shamed of being a teenage single mother and told no once of the course that she had a child.
