"This course at college is great experience and I enjoy learning from tutors like Dec Donnolly. I have a part-time job and I know a lot of people so could probably get more work but it is hard for young people of my age. If I had to describe myself to an employer it would be that I'm funny but also I'm hard working. I'm really looking forward to serving in the Marines and can't wait to get in."
