“I am leaning towards a career in the charity sector or international organisations ”
What are you doing now?

I am currently in my second year at Durham University studying for a BA in Liberal Arts and I major in History and International Relations.

What is your favourite memory from Wellington?

To pinpoint my favourite memory is difficult, I went on a five week exchange to Switzerland in fourth form which was amazing, I enjoyed almost every bit of sixth form (apart from the exams!) but probably graduation – one can never replace that day.

Why did you want to be a part of the campaign? What made you want to get involved?

I really wanted to be a part of the campaign as I loved my time at Wellington and would love the opportunity to be able to help other individuals experience the opportunities Wellington has to offer. However, I am also leaning towards a career in the charity sector or international organisations and this is an amazing opportunity to build on skills and learn more about how different forms of fundraising work.

A fun fact about yourself?

Growing up I was lucky enough to move around the world and at the age of 20 I have already lived in eight countries.
