Recently I met up with Adam from the University of Lincoln. The last time I saw him was when this picture was taken (four years ago). Kindly he reminded me of my ‘self portrait’ which he felt captured my care-free attitude towards being in a very conservative grammar school, which I think is nice.
I was recently also reminded (by somebody else) that I made the decision when I was at this school to not do what I was told. I applied to Coventry (God-forbid!) to do Photography (God-forbid even more for doing a vocational degree). The point being that I chased my own goals and not what anyone else made for me; that is something that I think we all must remind ourselves. Overcome the challenges and do the hard-grind- but keep your goals at the front of your mind and go for it.
