2016 - 2018
Habadesher Aske's Hatcham College
My time at Haberdashers is where I developed my passion for the Sciences, particularly developing my ideas of blending my disciplines into a tangible, usable degree which I can then use to contribute to humanities endurance through what I believe will be some of the hardest times in human history. I achieved an A grade in Mathematics, and narrowly missed the A grade for Physics and Chemistry, achieving A,B,B overall.
2018 - Present
Working as a Private Tutor with students from a very wide range of background and ability, from all over the UK has taught me how to connect and communicate with people from all different walks of life. It has taught me to be patient, and it has taught me the joy and value of sharing my own privilege and experiences with others, so that they can develop themselves to the fullest extent and go on to achieve great things.
2020 - 2020
LEON is a high volume, health focused fast food chain restaurant with over 60 branches worldwide. Joining them as part of the kitchen staff at Leadenhall Market in London showed me the value of being able to work and adapt quickly, using my own initiative to learn fast and to help the wider team achieve their goals. I was the only native English speaker in the restaurant and the experience humbled me to how hard I should work if I want to better my prospects, but also helped me to develop the way I use language to be understood by everyone.
