"Today, I'm an Executive Marketing Project Manager working for a FTSE 250 company & a successful photojournalist shooting for various clients that cover local & national sporting events, with the goal of working my way up the ladder in both fields. Out of all of this I want to make it clear I couldn't of reach this point of my life without 'hard work' and believing in myself & my passion.
I chose to study at Harrow College because I believed at the time Harrow College had the best facilities and ex-students from the college told me how great it was, and how I could benefit from it.
I always found Harrow College to be more of a relaxed atmosphere. Of course, when you go from High School to College, you think about grades & exams. However, aside from that, I found the lecturers to relate to any issues or problems I had on a more 'human' & understanding level. The other thing I enjoyed about my time at Harrow College was studying with fellow students with a rich background of different cultures.
I had enough UCAS points to go to a University of my choice. But I wanted to earn money & gain experience quicker, especially in situations where if there were any 'work-related' issues, I could solve them quickly by experience and knowledge, and with respect, not relying on a text book. Of course you are always quite nervous about making a decision not to go to University and deciding to go straight into the working world when, especially with the uncertainly of 'what to do next' & 'where to go from here'. However, I have always received excellent consultation & advice about 'life after college'. I always knew what I wanted to do; I just wanted some help about surviving in the big world.
Studying at Harrow College were some of the best years of my life. I'm always keeping in touch with past lectures & students, and always willing to come in and give talks to current students."
