17.

I turned 17 today (first driving lesson on Friday, yay!), and had a think about all I’ve had to be grateful for in the past year:

  • December 2014 promotion to Cadet Petty Officer in the CCF
  • February 2015: appointment to the RSGB Youth Committee
  • May: appointed as the Mayor’s Cadet for Wirral
  • July: was successful in gaining an Arkwright Engineering Scholarship
  • July: attended ‘Project DX15’, a youth DXpedition to the Brecon Beacons with the RSGB Youth Committee
  • August: all A* GCSE exam results
  • September: accompanied the Mayor of Wirral to the Granting of the Freedom of the Borough to T.S. Astute Sea Cadets and H.M.S. Astute
  • October: Arkwright scholarship awards ceremony in London
  • November: represented the Royal Navy section of the CCF at the Festival of Remembrance, Royal Albert Hall
  • November: ran sound for my fifth play – Guys & Dolls – with the school Dramatic Society

I’m thrilled to have been able to do all the above, and am immensely grateful that I’ve had these opportunities. Thank you to everyone who’s made this possible!

Now, if I can just get through A-levels…
