I wanted to be able to help my fellow students and be able to voice any concerns, suggestions or complaints they may have. I also wanted to expand my knowledge and be part of a team that were passionate about helping people and representing their college. I like that we are able to arrange days where we can give back to the community, for example, the Christmas meal we held for the elderly. I also like that we are all equals and we all work together as a team to be as efficient as possible. My future aspiration is to become a qualified Midwife, this is something I have wanted to do for the past 5 years and I am grateful that I have the opportunity to do it now.

I wanted to improve my communication skills as well as gain confidence. Being a student ambassasador has allowed me to work on myself and gain skills like confidence, team work and leadership, I belevive these skills will benefit not only me not only in college but also in my day to day life, being able to interact with different people is interesting as it helps me to understand different cultures and traditions. After college I will look forward to progressing onto university to study psychology. My future aspirations are to become a clinical psychologist.

I think joining really helped me network and meet all kinds of people. This was one of the main reasons why I wanted to join; I’ve learnt a lot already from communicating. Also, I really wanted to speak to younger people, about all the different routes they can take and become successful. This is something I wish I had when I was still in school, so hopefully by sharing my experience, they’ll learn something new or be open to new ideas. Being involved in the College is one of the benefits of being a student ambassador. I get to learn about all types of things that takes place to keep the college running smoothly. I also like the fact that being a student ambassador, shows people that we are open to conversation, offering help and just being a caring support system. I’d like to go to university and get my degree in accounting and finance. To then become a chartered accountant for a top firm. Further along the line, I’d also like to open up my own family business
