When I was younger there was a point in my life when I realised I was very unhealthy, but I was able to turn things around for myself by eating healthier and exercising properly. This made me realise that I wanted to work in sport fitness and be a nutritionist to help others to change their lives in the same way.

Why did you choose Sport & Exercise Science?

When I was younger there was a point in my life when I realised I was very unhealthy, but I was able to turn things around for myself by eating healthier and exercising properly. This made me realise that I wanted to work in sport fitness and be a nutritionist to help others to change their lives in the same way I did.

“As a deaf student I have barriers to my education that my hearing peers don’t have. The scholarship will help me with additional interpreter support above what is offered by the university. Having everything that I need to fully take part and access university life will mean that I can study without feeling stressed."

What made you choose Leeds Beckett?

Leeds Beckett was my first choice, the course was a great fit for me and what I wanted to achieve. Leeds Beckett has a great reputation for sport and I was really looking forward to using the new facilities.

How will the scholarship help you?

As a deaf student I have barriers to my education that my hearing peers don’t have. The scholarship will help me with additional interpreter support above what is offered by the university. Having everything that I need to fully take part and access university life will mean that I can study without feeling stressed.

I feel justified in the work that I have put in and the journey that I have been on to come to study at university and pursue my chosen career. In some ways it feels as though this is a reward and that I have worked to deserve receiving this award. I am incredibly grateful to those who have donated to this scholarship and who have helped to support me.
