Woman Who…Rising Star
Jodie Hooper, Cardinal Wiseman School Sponsor Jodie and her Tutor to attend our Awards Lunch
Jodie is described as an exemplary student with a drive and desire to succeed in her chosen field of veterinary nursing. She has worked hard to achieve top grades and fulfil the work experience hours required by her university application, by volunteering at the PDSA hospital, all the while being a carer for her mother.
Lucy Reynolds, Warwickshire College Sponsored by Online Toolbox
Lucy is described a shy and intelligent focused and driven young lady who over the last 18 months has been the only female in a class of 10 “typical blokes”. She has really come out of her shell and is the highest achieving student on the course, on target for a Distinction for her Foundation Degree and a 1st Class Honors Degree next year. She deserves recognition for how far she has come in such a short time within a male dominated environment with great potential.
Krushma, Bosamia, WMG Academy for Young Engineers Sponsored by Alsters Kelley Solicitors
Krushma joined WMG Academy for Young Engineers in 2014 making the conscious decision to leave her old school and enter a newly created education establishment specifically designed to support the creation of young engineers. This was a brave decision for a 14 year old girl who left her local school and who now travels across the city to achieve her education. 80% of students at WMG are boys; Krushma is certainly in the minority as a woman in engineering. From outset, it was very clear that Krushma was fixed not just on achieving high grades but more importantly on taking every opportunity to excel. She regularly acts as an ambassador for the academy and explains to potential students what life at WMG is like. Her commitment to academic excellence is outstanding.
Ellie King,Warwick University sponsored by The Emerald Group
Ellie is currently studying for her undergraduate degree at Warwick University yet she finds time and energy to create and run incredible local initiatives to promote women of all ages to be the best that they can be. One example is a regular group she has started where Warwick University students meet with Warwickshire businesswomen and enjoy afternoon tea in local tearooms. She is also helping to organise talks in schools on the role gender plays in career choices to encourage more girls and young women to look at STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) careers and not be put off by male-dominated industries.
Madeline Anderson, Rugby High School Sponsored by Orchard Business Development
Madeline has shown exceptional commitment to studying courses both within and outside school to propel her towards a career in Marine Biology. Aged 14, she embarked on an extra-curricular science project through school focussed on the effects of nitrogen on the body under pressure. The very high standard report she produced was awarded a British Association Gold CREST award. The project won the 2015 National Science and Engineering Competition and is of such a high quality that the Midlands Diving Chamber have it as mandatory reading for new members of staff. She is a fantastic role model to others and her success will have, in part led to record numbers choosing to study Triple Science for GCSE next year and has motivated more students to complete science projects in our clubs, with ever improving standard.
Brooklyn Cuthbert, Tile Hill Wood School Sponsored by Davidson Mahon Solicitors
Brooklyn works extremely hard and is dedicated, determined and well organised in all she does. Her Business coursework shows this in the sheer amount of time taken to produce detailed work in which she is justly proud of. She pushes herself to the limit to achieve her desired goals and is very focused on her Career Pathway. Brooklyn has applied to Welbeck Defence 6th Form College, taking A levels in Maths, Physics, Business & Geography. Out of school, Brooklyn spends much of her spare time with the Air Cadets where she displays strong Leadership Skills and Team Work which was recognised when she was promoted to Corporal. In addition, Brooklyn has recently been invited for interview in Birmingham for the Welbeck Defence 6th Form College.
Rosa Criminsi, Tile Hill Wood School Sponsored by
Rosa is currently in Year 12 studying Biology, English Literature, History and Spanish. Rosa’s grandfather was a WW2 refugee and has inspired Rosa into political activism from an early age, leading to her desire to study law and specialise in immigration or gender equality. Since achieving 12 GCSEs and joining 6th Form, she has secured a place on the highly competitive Pathways to Law programme run by Warwick University and including a work placement at Eversheds. Her passion for human rights also made her an obvious choice for one of the two places available to the school on the Lessons from Auschwitz project, which included a trip to Poland.
