My Story

Technology has always been a strong passion of mine. Since I could use a keyboard, I have programmed; I have always been highly motivated to learn and push my programming knowledge boundaries beyond where I didn’t think I could get to. I believe the mind-set I possessed carved my path to apply for B&FC. 

I wasn’t the brightest at school; I actually left with poor GCSE grades but I still applied regardless, hoping that it would mark a first step on my career ladder in software engineering. I successfully completed my Level 3 qualification and progressed onto the software development degree, which challenged me but only further convinced me to pursue a career in developing software/programming.

Throughout my time here, the tutors were amazingly helpful to me; I began to see them more as friends than just tutors. Surrounding myself with like-minded students also allowed me to lose a lot of my social anxiety and I felt part of something.
