Old Bedalian 2009

After leaving Bedales I went to University of Wales, Aberystwyth and gained a BSc in Business Information Technology. During 2015/2016 I attended Royal Holloway, University of London and gained an MSc in Information Security. After I completed my first degree I lived and worked in Florence for 4 months where I learnt Italian and worked in a technology and media company.

I am now a Civil Servant specialising in Cyber Security, I am currently employed by the Ministry of Defence and I’m on secondment to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London. I became a Civil Servant after my first degree where I joined a government agency and then subsequently transferred to the Ministry Of Defence’s Defence Engineering and Sciences Graduate Scheme specialising in Cyber Security.

Attending Bedales was a wonderful experience and I think that the variety of extracurricular activities Bedales provided gave me an advantage in applying to Universities. I love being a Civil Servant, it gives me the opportunity to take on different job roles in multiple organisations all the while continuing to learn and develop new skills.
