What are your future plans and ambitions?
In the future, I’m hoping to be able to use my languages on a daily basis, as well as learning more languages. It would be a dream to become an interpreter for the United Nations or alternatively I’d like to be able to work for an international charity or inspire others to study languages by going into the educational sector. I’m keeping my options open for now.
What has been the highlight of your life so far after leaving school?
Starting university has been amazing; I’ve really enjoyed meeting new people from so many different backgrounds, gaining so much more independence, and trying out lots of new things.
What is your favourite Teesdale memory?
If I had to choose one favourite aspect of Teesdale, it would have to be all the amazing school trips over the years – from a history trip to the Belgian battlefields to winning a competition to go and visit the European Parliament in Strasbourg, I learnt so much and really appreciated so many exciting opportunities.
