Congratulations Alex!

Alex's Graduation
Alex’s Graduation

This week’s blog is in honour of our very own Alex Dobocan, who – after months of working for BlueSky by day and hitting the books by night – graduated from the University of Bedfordshire today, with a Masters in Cyber Stalking.


Though she should be busy celebrating, she took the time to send us this photo of herself in her cap and gown. In her email she remarked, “My hair looks like someone took an axe and chopped half of it off!”


Of course, we’ve all assured her that she looks lovely – but the picture has got us all talking about our own graduation ceremonies, and the ever-so-slightly embarrassing photographs of us in our caps and gowns.


And in celebration of Alex’s achievement, we’ve decided we’d share these photographs with you!

It seems Bruce (left) couldn’t stand the thought of actually wearing his cap for his photo! He graduated from Newcastle University in 2010, with a BA in Politics and Sociology.
