    I am currently studying BA English Literature with Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia (UEA). Having been bound to the first former Apprentice to become an Apprentice Master, Tilly Sherwood, on 26th November 2020, I am part of the newest intake of Apprentices within the Company. 

    Despite this, I have already managed to take advantage of an array of opportunities available within the Company, including attendance at the Covid-19 Security Lectures, a series of inspiring and educational webinars run throughout summer. I have also been actively engaged in support of our website redesign, meeting with members of the Company over Zoom to formulate ideas and initiatives to ensure a positive user-experience. Currently, I am working with the communications sub-committee to streamline the editing and publication process of Company communications.

    As I am aspiring to pursue a career in Journalism, I have utilised the networking opportunities made available by becoming part of the Company to write articles and conduct interviews to be published in Concrete, UEA’s student newspaper for which I am Editor-in-Chief. Recently, I interviewed Immediate Past Master Mike Barley on his experiences as a former United Nations Weapons Inspector in Iraq – an extremely valuable opportunity.

    Having developed a close relationship with my Apprentice Master, Tilly continues to support my career-related endeavours, offering advice on a wide array of subjects, from work experience to suggested reading material, keeping up-to-date with my latest articles, and facilitating networking opportunities.

    Although only at the start of my Apprenticeship journey, I am already reaping the benefits of being part of such a supportive and benevolent community. I look forward to progressing my personal development over the next four years.

    I inrolled as an Apprentice in November 2016 while I was in my second year at King’s College London. Since then, I have been mentored by my Apprentice Master, Ray Williams, who has since then become a great friend of mine.

    Since joining the Company, I have been active in attending many events, and have sat in both the Young Members’ Committee and the COVID-19 Working Group as the Apprentice representative. I have also advised on the organisation of the Whittington Course programme, and have written several articles for the Company website. These experiences have by far given me opportunities to plan events alongside some of the most senior members of the Company. I am grateful that the Company listens to young people’s thoughts and opinions in making key decisions.

    After receiving my BA in International Relations, I received an MSc in Comparative Social Policy from Oxford, and has since then been working in the field of sustainability research in London. I received my Freedom recently in November 2020. My job requires me to look at multinational companies’ and their mitigation plans towards climate change and social issues, which means that I research potential physical, financial, market and operational risks of these companies. Being a member of the Company has therefore helped me in understanding security in multitude of ways, and I am able to apply them into my work. Outside of this all, I am a keen marathoner and an advanced scuba diver!
