I’m 15 years old and go to Notre Dame High School.
For GCSEs I’m doing textiles, geography and business. I inspire to work in the property industry such as architecture and interior design.
I took part in a workshop called Regeneration Brainery. Regeneration helped me realise what the working environment is like. At first I thought there were only a few roles, I now know that there are many, such as planner, surveyer, project manager, engineer and an architectural technician.
I love doing fundraising and charity work. I have raised money for many charities including St Wilfreds homeless centre which I raised over £100 by doing a sponsored silence.
