Growing up in West London, I struggled with school work and had little confidence in my skills and ability to achieve. That all changed when I joined this school. I left with seven GCSE’s and a renewed confidence to utilise my talents and achieve my ambitions. I pursued my dream and started my own company; Phone Heroes is a London based tech start up, specialising in smartphone, tablet and laptop repairs. We have two bustling stores in London and are aiming for further investment to expand to 15 stores by 2017. The school gave me the confidence and ability to go on and achieve what I set my mind to.
