What is your fondest memory of Felsted School?

My favourite moment was when I found out that I had been awarded the bursary for my final year and that I would be able to finish my secondary school education at Felsted. My life changed significantly that day and I wouldn’t be where I am today had it not been for that day. 

Did a particular member of staff inspire you? 

Mrs Sonia Wilson was my greatest inspiration - she supported me not only in my interest in Economics, but also personally outside of the classroom. She is a big role model for me because of how she has managed to build a successful career, and a lovely family at the same time - a truly impressive combination. 

How did your time at Felsted impact the path you have taken?

At Felsted, I was surrounded by inspirational and supportive people, who helped me push myself, work through obstacles, and achieve, if not exceed my goals. I learnt that when you believe in yourself and work hard, you can achieve great things in and out of the classroom. 

How would you sum up your time at Felsted?

My time at Felsted was life- changing,  transformative, and very enjoyable. It was a combination of learning, camaraderie and personal growth, and I would recommend this fantastic experience to anyone, whatever their career aspirations might be.
