Which A Levels did you study?

I studied History, Geography and Economics.

BA International Relations at Queen Mary University London.

I then studied for an MSc in Security Studies at UCL.

What are you doing now and what plans do you have for the future?

I own a digital marketing agency, Nouveaux Media. We are only three months old but we are doing fantastically well with several global clients ranging from NGOs to commerce. I plan to expand my client base and take on new staff.

What influence has Lancing College had on your life?

Lancing gave me a strong work ethic, research skills and a strong friendship group.

Which hobbies or interests did you pick during your time at Lancing?

Shooting and physical fitness.

Are you still in touch with people you met at Lancing?

Yes, my closest group of friends were all boarders with me in Gibbs’ House. We left Lancing in 2011 and have remained in touch since.

Which OL activities have you taken part in since you left?

I have attended the Business networking event in London organised by Lancing.

What advice would you give to a new pupil who is about to start Lancing?

Take advantage of the extracurricular activities such as Young Enterprise, and when applying to university, consider contacting the course director directly before submitting your UCAS application. This way you build a relationship with the university prior to application.
