Monster Confidence Event at Plexal

Ten students from Christ the King: Emmanuel, St. Mary’s and Aquinas attended the ‘Monster Confidence’ Event at Plexal, Queen Elizabeth Park in Stratford.

This event was run by the Stemettes who promote women in STEM (Science, Technology, Maths and Engineering). The students were involved in confidence workshops, mentoring and interview practice. They also met many inspirational women who currently work in STEM. It was an inspiring day for all. 

Sabrina Toshi, who is studying A-level Maths, Physics and Chemistry said ‘Once the “Monster Confidence” event started, I enjoyed every single moment. I had the opportunity to meet and talk to professionals from some of the biggest, worldwide companies.’

Annie Koudiane – My Start in Studying at De Montfort University

Hi, my name is Annie and I used to be a student at Christ the King Sixth Form: Aquinas. I studied BTEC Business and graduated in 2018 with a D*D*D. I have just started at De Montfort University, studying Accounting & Finance.

My university experience has been wonderful so far. Last week I had my introductory sessions where I met my lecturers, tutors and class members for my course. I really enjoyed my Matriculation ceremony, where I was welcomed by the Vice-Chancellor into the Business and Law Faculty. 

I have also joined two clubs which are Archery and GoGlobal; GoGlobal lets student have the opportunity to travel the world, volunteer in another country and help the environment or local community whilst developing key skills. 

 I am very lucky in that with the help of Christ the King I have been awarded a £15,000 scholarship by Metric Capital Partners for the duration of my studies. Metric Capital Partners are a capital fund management company and the firm’s managing partner is a gentleman called John Sinik.

 I am really looking forward to studying at De Montfort University and of a great year ahead!
