“Having left SMCC in 2014, I went on to study the International Baccalaureate at Exeter College. I have been working at the school since March 2018 as Clerk to Governors. I am very lucky to be able to give back to such a wonderful community. I have just completed my BA in English Literary Studies at the University of Exeter. In September 2019 I will continue onto my MA of the same subject. I enjoy travel, believing in the importance of experiencing a diverse variety of cultures and languages. In 2014 I became one of the many SMCC students to visit Uganda in conjunction with AMIGOS. I have also been interrailing, travelled to the Philippines, and visited Jordan this summer. This was a real highlight for me, as I have always wanted to visit the Lost City of Petra.”

After completing my GCSE’s at SMCC in 2014, I continued my education at Petroc College, studying A Levels in Chemistry, Biology and Psychology, with an AS level in History. During these two years at college, I also took on the role of a STEM ambassador to promote the study of the sciences, to young people, particularly encouraging women to join these male dominated areas. Following my A-Levels, I studied Forensic Science at the University of Kent for three years. After successfully achieving a First Class Honours in my degree, I will be returning to University of Kent this September to study a Masters in Forensic Osteology and Field Recovery Methods. In the future, I hope to travel to see more of the world and gain valuable life experience in different cultures before entering full time employment in a career aiding the Police force in forensic evidence laboratories.
