A YOUNG woman who is unable to walk or feed herself has defied the odds to gain a master’s degree.

Therese Hunt, 26, who has cerebral palsy will graduate from Roehampton University with an MSc in bio-mechanics, the study of human movement.

Each of her exams took 18 hours and she had to dictate each word to a scribe because she is unable to hold a pen or use a computer.

She said: “Out of all my achievements doing the masters is the greatest. Studying a masters can be demanding for anybody.

“I will be graduating in March and I am very excited about that. But I am most looking forward to starting a career.”

Therese, from Billericay, has always wanted to work with amputees from the war and has been looking for work experience, following her graduation.
