It is my belief that we should challenge ideas from different perspectives, to not accept anything at face value. Through exploration, humans should discover then develop opinions and overcome issues. We must study, diagnose and critique and this has been reinforced throughout my life experiences.
I have been a Mentor from Years 10 to 11, and continued to do so through til my A-level studies. This has been incredibly useful because I have worked with many different children and have assisted in supporting them. Through my A-levels this was focused on one child who had difficulties with completing homework as well as engaging in class. I was able to see a improvement with the little time I mentored him. Moreover, I have been tutored as well as being the tutor, this has meant I have first hand experience in what effective tutoring is. I myself had mixed experiences but found my favourite tutor to be memorable even now during university, I am reminded of his trust and belief in my potential and that has made me who I am today. I hope to make such an impact on another. Additionally, I feel that I am understanding considering I have gone through school, sixth form and now currently undertaking my bachelor's this means I will be able to be on their level and therefore make them realise and improve on their academic and personal capabilities and skills.
Ultimately, my intellectual curiosity stimulates me to ensure other children have the same opportunities that I have had in my life, I am so grateful for the opportunities I have had and view education as a luxury considering unfortunately many have not had the advantage of having one.

My A-level studies gave me an introductory understanding of how to think critically. Psychology - the skill of gathering data and analysing statistics using tests, such as Mann-Whitney U test, this taught me various types of analysis techniques of numerical data. Through Business Studies I developed my essay writing skills, having to hold a rational argument. For example, the importance of the way businesses incorporates motivational initiatives into their business culture. Sociology made me conscious of how the subject enriches human culture, in general having to relate contemporary examples to sociological concepts made me comprehend this, for example the Grenfell Tower disaster.
Upon embarking on my university journey, I have gained further insight on the world. I have developed many skills, most significantly debating and having to impart points clearly to others. For instance, I had to present an analysis on a job I would like to apply to once I have graduated and what makes me suitable for the position. I enjoyed this because I had chosen a ‘Fashion Merchandiser’ position which many people wouldn’t think a social science degree would be applicable to. I read Diana Crane’s book on “Fashion and its Social Agendas” which reinforces the significance of sociological understanding even in fashion. Furthermore, having done a literature review wherein I was required to formulate my own research question, gave me an understanding of how I can conduct my own research and be critical of previous research that had been conducted. Additionally, the theory I have learnt within lectures and critical discussions in seminars on various topics including Modernity and Progress, in particular exploring the analysis of paintings including the Angelus Novus and The Flammarion Engraving have broadened my understanding and have been fascinating.
In my spare time during A Levels I had applied for the Young Leader’s Programme. Following two interviews, I attended a series of workshops for several months, from October 2015. The aim of the course was to increase my understanding of social cohesion and community outreach. To successfully graduate I presented a campaign on girl gangs., I attempted to challenge the argument that girl gangs are socially constructed. To begin a successful campaign, I conducted a semi-structured interview with a former girl gang member, this formed the base of my argument. It was essential to gain enough material, therefore, I read research papers to create a stronger argument. Ultimately, this experience meant I improved in confidence when leading groups and general public speaking.
