Going on the school ski trip to France on my 10th birthday, even though I was really nervous to be away from home for a week for the first time.
Receiving the Richard Spring cup in my first term at South Lee, which really made me feel part of the school.
My first sports match against another school, because I was proud to represent South Lee.

Who inspires you?
My father as he works so hard and helps people who really need it!

I smiled in amazement as I hauled up a big eel while I was crabbing in Norfolk.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
Whatever anyone says, you are your own person and can make you own mind up.
If you could acquire a new skill in 10 minutes, what would it be?
To play the guitar!
