"I was at my local sixth form college originally but I knew straightaway that it was not a good fit. The atmosphere was not fresh and I was not inspired. I did not want to see the same type of people that I had in secondary school, as I felt like I was reliving an old life. A friend of mine already went to the College and told me that it was amazing. I loved the Open Day where they advised me to gain more experience in software, so I started at Level 2 and will progress to Level 3 Animation & Games Design next year."
