As well as acheiving a grade B in each subject, I have also completed an Extended Project Qualification focused on the future of automation and computerisation in creative industries, and how it might impact on their economies and labour markets.
Participation in hackathons has allowed me to put my skills to the test in a computer science and software context, requiring spontaneous ideas and effective collaboration, upon which my goal-driven attitude thrives. Combining this with my ability to perform under pressure has made me adaptable to any environment.

During the summer of 2015 I hiked 54 KM over three days as a member of a team in the Peak District, utilising teamwork and communication skills. This provided me with a platform from which to apply my talent for planning and problem-solving while fulfilling my love of hiking and the outdoors.
At a young age, I became involved in Scouting, and it has paved the way for the volunteering that I continue today. As a Scout leader, I am always keen to organise and deliver interesting and educational sessions to the younger people in the community, sharing my experience along the way. My volunteering extends to other charities too. I spent a week last summer working with the local charity Operation Orphan, preparing clothing and donations to be delivered to those in need.
