"My ultimate ambition is to become a sports journalist.

"I dream of one day becoming a sports presenter on Sky Sports News and being paid to talk about sports.

“My qualifications will help me in the future as they have prepared me for the type of work I will be doing at university. The dissertation/essay format is one that I have used in all of my subjects and so I will be ready for Higher Education.

“When I first came to College, I had no confidence in myself or my abilities.

"However, I now believe that I can achieve anything I set out to do and I have the confidence to step out of my comfort zone and try something new and NCC is the primary reason for this.”
