WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
We thought it would be nice to catch up with a few young people who have previously appeared in the news to see what they are doing now:
After successfully completing her A levels, Katie went on to the University of Bath to study Health and Exercise Science and has now just finished her second year. Katie is starting a year’s placement working for a charity, Access Sport, in September and will then complete her final year at University in 2020/21.
Katie has continued her passion for sport, representing the University in BUCS hockey and playing volleyball for fun in her spare time.
In the summer of 2018, Katie was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and is now insulin dependent. She thought she wouldn't be able to continue her studies, but has now made it through her 2nd year and is looking forward to the summer break to adjust to her change in health in stress free conditions.
Toni went to 6th form after school and studied A Level English literature and language. Toni then went back for a further two years, gaining a BTEC in Biology. After leaving college Toni went to Nottingham Trent and studied for a Bachelor’s degree in Biology, graduating in 2016. Since qualifying Toni has had three jobs, Milk Recording, Lab Technician and is now working as Technical Support for a company called SciQuip, who sell lab equipment. Toni is currently in Germany on a training course and is soon off to China for further training. Toni now lives with her boyfriend in a house they purchased together in 2017 and are the proud owners of a bearded collie and three cats!
