His story

I am currently a student at Epping Forest college and I am in my second year of studying creative media production and am very close to the end of the college year. I am hoping to be going to university for the start of the next academic year to continue studying media.

I am originally from Lithuania and have been living in the UK since I was three years old. When I moved to the UK I couldn't speak English at all and had to learn how to speak it. I had to heavily adapt to life in the UK as it is nothing like my home country. I have a very strong passion for the media, and it all started when I did GSCE media in secondary school. In the final media exam I ended up getting an A, even though I thought I did horribly. From secondary school I went to college and continued learning about media.

From there, my passion for media grew even more and I became interested in a lot of different topics such as film and television. That's my journey so far and I hope that it gets a lot bigger and better as this is only just the beginning.
