Years at Empire: 2010

[Empire] allowed for me to believe that I can do anything if I work hard and never give up.

Where are you now?
I am currently in my final year of studying Law at Bournemouth University.

How, if at all, did the Empire help you get there?
Empire improved my confidence and understanding of the requirements that are needed to succeed at a career in law. It also allowed for me to believe that I can do anything if I work hard and never give up.

What’s your favorite Empire moment?
After the first round, when we found out that we beat the winners of the previous year, it was a great achievement for a team that felt completely out of its depth!

How would you describe the Empire to someone that has never been?
It is a competition that will change your life forever. Although very tough at times, it is one that will make you feel the rewards no matter what the outcome is.
