* Advice for current students: “Remain focused and try to enjoy the time you have.

JOSH (2017)

* Advice to current students: “Study for your exams no matter whether you like the subject. You may think you don’t need certain qualifications, however later on after college you may want a career change. You never truly know what you want to do as a career until you work for someone and find a passion. You will always make mistakes along  the way but it’s never a failure – it wasn’t meant to be and there’s always a new path to follow. Get as many qualifications as you can and you’ll always have access to change your job and go to places you want to go.”
