Sorcha Wright

One of the things second year Spanish and English student Sorcha is most looking forward to when she finishes her degree is going home to prove to the young people in her community that a university education is not beyond their reach.

Having fought every step of the way to get the higher education she is now so making the most of, Sorcha never takes a single day at UCD for granted and is determined that her success will show others that there are people like you who believe in them and want them to succeed.
