Student Diaries
This is our 2004 Student Diaries series, where we follow four disabled students during their first month at university as freshers, through diaries that they sent us.

Bobbie has mental health problems and dyslexia and is studying Fine Arts at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. She enjoys artistic pursuits including photography, painting, drawing and working with Digital Media.
Darren is blind and is studying Computer Science and History at Keele University. He's into indie rock, bands like Franz Ferdinand, Coldplay and Green Day.
