“Doing these events was so much fun and quite challenging at the same time. I’ve never really thought of myself as someone who could represent the college to the whole borough of Barking and Dagenham,” Connor said.

“But working with my tutors and class, we were able to pull off the events spectacularly,” he added. Connor’s former tutor Steve Burger praised the young boy stating that the scholarship is a reward of his hardwork and dedication.



“Connor securing the scholarship comes as no surprise to the team. I would like to congratulate him on behalf of the college and wish him well for the future,” Steve said. He was presented with his award at the Hendon-based university’s annual scholarship awards.

“I feel honoured to be chosen for the community scholarship; when I applied I thought I wouldn’t be good enough for it, but when they emailed me saying ‘you got it’, you wouldn’t believe how loud I screamed,” he said.
