Fareham College student Jake Haven has been celebrating his Triple Distinction, the top grade for a BTEC Level 3 course, after undergoing a kidney transplant last summer.
The business student has not only been on dialysis four times a-day, which he administered himself at college, he has also fought a rare form of cancer and diabetes.
“My parents and student services have been amazing; I couldn’t have done it without them,” said Jake.
“I want to give something back. I can relate to kids who have been through what I have as I’ve had kidney troubles since I was two.”
Jake also came third in the javelin at the British Transplant Games. He plans to continue his studies and, as a result of the care he received during his treatment, will go on to level 3 health and social care.
