About

I am a young lad, born in the town of Gosport that sits on the south coast of England between Portsmouth and Southampton. Since I was young, I have loved football and many other sports. At the age of 14, I joined the army cadets and wanted to pursue a career in the British Army. However, due to me being hearing impaired, I was not able to do that and was forced to look at other careers. Thinking about other sectors that interest me, I though about the young engineers course that I participated in as a youngster. Enjoying the mechanical course better, I looked into mechanical engineering and explored the possibility of that career path. As I watched formula 1 from a young age with my dad, I looked into what it takes to become a formula 1 engineer and I was immediately hooked. Since then, I have applied to a level 2 diploma motorsport engineering course at Fareham college (which is where I completed the young engineers course) and I have my place on that course confirmed. I know that the college have good facilities, with a garage with correct equipment, in their CEMAST building. I know that to get to formula 1 as an engineer, it will take a lot of hard work and perseverance. However, I am willing to do what it takes and put blood sweat and tears into achieving my goal. I will not give up and I will not let anything hold me back too easily.
