After leaving school Stephanie knew she wanted to study but was not sure what would be most suited to her skills. She came to London and worked for a while as an Au pair. She found Kensington and Chelsea College and realised an ambition to study Computer Arts and Design. She joined the BTEC First Diploma in Art and Design: Multimedia and Graphics which offered her the right balance of Art, Design and Graphics.

“The course taught me how to work from a professional brief; it gave me freedoms and restrictions, but helped me to work under the pressure of deadlines. The course was interesting because there were people from different countries and of varying ages. You can learn a lot from so many different characters. Our tutor helped us to recognise what would suit us after our course and I am now on the National Certificate in Multimedia at the College and planning to go to University! I feel so much more confident and optimistic.”
