I have been working my way through the levels of a Performing Arts course – I’ve just completed Level 1 and my intention is to slowly make my way through all three levels.
It’s a funny story – I wasn’t really set on a course that I wanted to study but I knew that I wanted to come to Canterbury College as I had heard that it was very accepting towards home-schooling students. As I had been previously home-schooled, this sounded ideal. So I ended up on the Performing Arts course – probably due to my love of comedy!
My course has not only educated me in Drama but has also given me the skills required to get a job. A lot of these skills are things like multitasking, organisation and working under pressure. I find that there is something about being a performer and a people-person that goes hand-in-hand. I find myself naturally leading in my scenarios in the SU and feel very capable to hand anything – all things that I credit to my course.
I will always ask for support from the team when I need it. As a previous Communications Officer, I know that I can be fully committed to both my course and being a Vice-President.
I am very ambitious and I know that I want to ensure that College is a great place for everyone. I want every student to see College as a place that they want to be.
My aim is to follow in Andrew’s footsteps as he was the Vice-President last year. I know that he will always be able to lend me a hand. I have worked closely with Andrew for the past year which has provided us with a bond and a connection that make us work well as a team. I feel like we can easily support each other as we know what motivates us.
If you want to help people and make a difference, being a part of the SU is the path for you! Take it slow and never hesitate to ask for support. At the end of the day, we’re all a team and we all look out for each other. When you first join it can feel a little daunting, but the support is fantastic.
My plans never go further than one step at a time – I know that I want to do a good job as a Vice-President and I will look to do a very similar role next year to give back to the College – I just want everyone to enjoy College – that’s my plan!
