When I was in year 10 I became a member of the Enfield Youth Parliament (EYP). Being a member of the EYP meant that I could attend official meetings with The Mayor Of Enfield, Metropolitan Police and the Director of The NHS. Attending these engagements helped me to be the voice of many young people in the area. Being apart of that committee was a honour and one of my greatest achievements. It also helped me to become the Head Girl of my school in year 11 which was a great experience as I was able to be the voice for my peers in my school.

Experiencing these life achievements helped me to prepare for my career.

When I was 15 years old I started my first job in a designer retail store. I then proceeded to work in Mothercare during my A-Level. I received A’s and Distinctions* in all of my A-Level courses which enabled me to start my career in an accountancy firm studying Business and Admin with BBP university.

I now currently work for Transport For London as a degree apprentice studying Business Management at Pearson Business School.

Being a degree apprentice, means that I have to work full time and attend university one day a week. My tuition fees are paid for by Transport For London and I also receive a salary. This is a new scheme for Transport For London and I am one of the first apprentices to be selected, which is a privilege and honour. Being a degree apprentice is an amazing life achievement for me as I am able to work towards gaining a degree without any debt, whilst gaining experience in different working environments across the network.

Alongside these great achievements I also have my own business in photography. Running my own business whilst working and studying can be challenging sometimes but I enjoy every second of it as I enjoy overcoming challenges.
