Ryan completed his Media Level 3 course in 2020 and, at the time writing, is employed as an animator at Wolverhampton university.
He told us he appreciated his time at the College. “Every day was an interesting adventure which has led me on a journey of discovery, experiment and overall self-discovery. It was an experience I will never forget, where I felt like I could be myself without others judging me – it made me feel alive.”
“I enjoyed learning new skills and developing those skills to push myself further beyond that what I thought was possible and becoming my better self. Without college, I wouldn’t have gone through the hardships and the trials I had to face; whilst they could be tough and I struggled sometimes, I knew I had to pick myself up and keep going. I wouldn’t stop until my goals were completed.”
Ryan continued, “My fondest memory of college is when I won the award for best animation. It was something I will never forget, it made me realise just how much I had grown as a person.”
