This diagram represents the factors that have been an influence in Mo’s life. It is a spray diagram of boxes arranged around a central box, like the spokes of a wheel. In the centre of the spidergram is a box reading ‘Mo’. Six boxes surround this central box, all connected by a line to the centre box. From the top and going clockwise, the first box reads ‘University education, skills in research, career goal’; the second box reads ‘Support organisations’; the third box reads ‘Availability of college places, suitable accommodation, lack of finance, language skills, racism’; the fourth box reads ‘Political situation in Iran, Political situation in UK’; the fifth box reads ‘Parents, family, friends’; and the sixth box reads ‘Personal attitude, resilience, motivation, work ethic’.
