As part of our #loveHE campaign, Times Higher Education has asked followers on Twitter to tell us why they love the academy
This week's tweet of the week is:
From tailor and dinner lady's daughter to mum of doctor and government economist. One generation of HE. @JackieCarter
Tell us why you love the sector on Twitter @timeshighered, using the hashtag #loveHE.
Our favourite each week will win a £10 book token.
