My time at St Lawrence Collage was a mix of highs and lows. The pressure of being away from home and of course working hard towards exams ensuring you can achieve the highest grade possible. 

 

However, the extra curriculum activities which was offered has helped me achieved where I am now. I made the most of being part of the CCF and Duke of Edinburgh Award. Taken part in those extra curriculum has help me do the job I am now doing! 

 

After leaving St Lawrence College I studied ‘Adventure Sports Management’ at the University of Central Lancashire (UClan). I have now been working in the outdoor industry for around 8 years now. This has allowed me to work in all national parks in the UK, Italy, and now recently living and working in Kenya. With all the hobbies I do in my spare time and work; kayaking, climbing and Mountaineering. I have kayaked in the amazing rivers of Nepal, Uganda and Kenya, and taken groups up Mount Kenya and more recently leading a team up Kilimanjaro. 

 

Your passion can become your job!
