“My teachers at CTK are amazing! They are always willing to talk me through difficult concepts by simplifying them and ensuring that I develop my understanding of them.”
What are you looking forward to most at Oxford University?
“At Oxford I hope to network with new people and also acquire more specialist skills, such as programming.”
What are your plans after you finish further education?
“I really aspire to be an engineer at Telsa, that would be amazing!”
