A yung woman who refused to be held back by dyslexia is celebrating after passing her degree.
Maya Busby, of Great Yarmouth, has graduated from the University of Lincoln with a degree in fine art.
And when she donned her gown and mortarboard it was a double case for celebration, as she was presented with an outstanding achievement award from the school of fine and performing arts.
She originally began a degree in primary education at the University of Winchester, however, after changing her path she flourished in her new topic.
She said: 'Being dyslexic I initially found the level of writing very challenging, but through perseverance, support from tutors and peers, lots of reading and time spent in the library, I gradually improved.'
