I’m a B.A. Journalism student at Brunel University London.
In my first year, I am holding four elected positions in the Union of Brunel Students alongside three on-campus jobs. I’m making the most of my time (and £9,000 fees) at university and suggest – to anyone else studying at university – that you should do too.
Before studying at university, I used to be the Head Boy of Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys.
I was tasked with representing a student body of over 1,200 boys and, in the sixth form, girls – it was an honour. I helped to ensure that the Head Boy represented, and was reachable, by the entire school – not just the Sixth Form, as was the case before.
And before Langton, I used to study at Barton Court.
From the Headteacher herself, I learnt how not to treat people – seeing teachers who I respected cry into their desks because of her actions taught me another aspect of life I didn’t quite expect to learn about at the age of 16.
I love live events, music and radio.
They’re my three main passions that I’ve found work with from an early age. Since the age of 14, I’ve worked with 13 different event brands in the UK and beyond. In 2016, I listened to music for approximately 79.82 days non-stop. My proudest achievement to date is introducing Taylor Swift at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in front of 25,000 people.
