Having come from a working class background in Stoke-on-Trent, where mining and china production used to be the main employment industries, I never thought I would have the opportunity of being able to study in such a high calibre university. So, to have obtained a place at LSE is like a dream come true and I am extremely grateful to be studying at such a specialised social sciences institution that is world renowned for its research and its teaching.
I come from a state school background and have always worked as hard as I can to be a high achiever and appreciate that you should never take anything for granted. When I have completed my studies at LSE I want to achieve my ambition of becoming a barrister. Following on from that, I would like to have the opportunity to return to university to complete my master's. This will enable me to be able to give something back to society, possibly by becoming a lecturer in one of the top universities and by doing so inspire others that 'any dream is possible, whatever your background' as long as you are prepared to work hard.
