“Winning a silver medal is such a personal achievement. I entered WorldSkills UK lacking in confidence. Winning second place was so affirming and the experience as a whole was unforgettable.

“This was my first ever competition and I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I put all my energy over the last few months into preparing ideas and designs, and practising techniques, whilst managing to juggle work and family commitments.

“Thanks to a hugely supportive boss, the team at Fresh Ideas and my tutors, I managed to get through it all.”

“Working in the fine art sector wasn’t for me, however my art practice always involved floral subject matter.

“I knew that I needed to do something hands-on. I have always learnt best that way. I saw an apprenticeship opportunity and jumped at the chance to do it; it was the perfect fit.

“Floristry constantly surprises me. I never know what I will be making when I get to work and that is so exciting.

“Every day is about innovative problem solving and creatively adapting, and I love it. I’ve got my eye on some competitions next year.”
