Lucy Morrison, project manager apprentice, NCR: I feel absolutely overwhelmed. Never in a million years did I think that I would be recognised for my work. I left school at 15 and I went on to study beauty therapy and now I’m in a technology-based role at one of the largest companies in the world. It’s like a fairytale come true. It means everything. For four years I had to work extremely hard, I was working full-time and doing a full-time degree at night time, for a long time I was wondering was it really worth it, but now I know it was.
