How and why did you decide which subjects to study?

I’ve always wanted to be a Pilot or Engineer for Formula One cars, so Physics, Maths and Further Maths are pretty essential. I chose Classics purely out of interest, as I had always enjoyed ancient myths.

What have you enjoyed most about your courses?

I particularly enjoyed the trip to the Royal Observatory and Planetarium for Physics and the trip to the British Museum for Classics. I’ve enjoyed the study of ancient sites like the Acropolis and also finding out about the stars and planets.

Tell us about any College activities you’ve been involved in?

I completed my Gold DofE Award at College, which was a fantastic experience, as I got to travel down to Dartmoor and Wales with a great group of mates, and had a brilliant time doing it. It was organised really well and was a very enjoyable experience.

What are your plans for the future?

Through the Aspire Programme at College, I researched universities and courses that would be suitable preparation for becoming an Engineer or Pilot. This was really useful, as it pushed me towards selecting Aeronautical Engineering at Loughborough University.

Aspire also provided me with information on how to get the most out of my time at College and what I could do to help myself be successful.

I hope to one day be a Formula One Designer and work with experienced professionals in a top level racing team.
