"I have very happy memories of my time at Bishop Ullathorne school. Many brilliant teachers helped me achieve my dreams- Terry Kenny who taught English, Mrs Simons who taught French, Mrs Johnson who taught Latin. And Mr Avery who taught me not only French but Spanish O-level in one year in Lower Sixth. He encouraged me to apply for Oxford and when I got in, he taught me Italian after school in Upper Sixth. He had a book on his desk "teach yourself Western Samoan". We never did get to do that together! But he also told me that nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it."

Environmental and Conservation Voluntary Worker
I was always passionate about environmental issues.
At school I loved Geography and Biology and studied environmental sciences at Birmingham University
Through my passion for conservation, sustainability and the environment I have been able to seize many opportunities.
Through my university I went to New Zealand to work for the institute of Water and Atmosphere. As a research assistant I helped the fisheries team to analyse sustainable water use in Christchurch.
As well as learning about a wide variety of fish I could see first hand how scientists are discovering and learning about the environment and human impact on that environment.
I also got the chance to go on a conservation project to track and monitor turtle hatchlings in Antalya, Turkey. This allowed me to see the impact of human development on natural processes and how important volunteers and conservation projects are.
Most recently I have undertaken an ICS project with Raleigh International, this took me to El Pegador in Nicaragua. The project focused on sustainable livelihoods for young entrepreneurs.
Although my Spanish was terrible I built lasting friendships and memories I will always cherish!
I hope my story inspires other Ullathorne students that although I haven’t had a clear career path, my voluntary work has given me a wealth of experience and knowledge to help me build my future career.
