What A Levels did you study?

If you went to university, where did you go and what did you study? If you didn’t go to university, what did you do instead?

I went to the University of Nottingham and studied BSc Hons Industrial Economics.

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

I graduated in July and begin the PwC Management Consulting Graduate Scheme in April 2021.

What influence has Lancing College had on your life?

Lancing had a huge impact on my life - it made me more confident and what I learnt from Lancing was pivotal behind the extra curricular and academic choices I made at university.

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

There were a lot of hobbies I picked up from Lancing, I especially loved the sport on offer and the ability to play daily. Another hobby I picked up was volunteering - I went on the Malawi Expedition which motivated me to lead a Ghanaian-based social enterprise whilst at university as well as getting involved with other volunteering projects.

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

I have kept in touch with a lot of people from Lancing - I'm even housemates with someone who also went to Lancing despite us leaving over 4 years ago.

What OL activities have you taken part in since you left (i.e. OL sports events, Business Networks etc.)?

A wide variety of OL activities - OL football, OL cricket, attending OL gatherings and going back to the College to do talks for the current students.

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

My main advice for a new student would be to get stuck in as much as possible. Lancing has a great variety of different things you can do and I would recommend new students taking advantage of this - it's also a great way to get to know people with different interests. I also recommend having the confidence to try and go outside your comfort zone and getting involved in things which previously you may have felt nervous about as Lancing offers a safe and supportive environment to really push yourself to get the best out of yourself.
