I am currently Head Boy at St Joan’s and am studying Maths, History and Business and am hoping to go to university this September to study Computer Science at Southampton. I got involved in Udayan when Mrs Weldon did her presentation to the Sixth Form. Then from hearing more from Mrs Weldon in Business lessons I became hooked, her enthusiasm rubbed off on to all of us.

In the last year I have jointly organised Light Music an’ Eats and the Hootenanny. I can’t wait to go to India and see Udayan, I feel it will be a life changing experience, and an emotional time, with many highs and lows. Going to see what our money has done will be great and how the children benefit from our efforts. I hope that once we return we will be able to share our experiences and inspire others like we have been to help Udayan.
