Education is something we all go through, this is Emily's first hand experience of the difficulties she faced; from the 11+ to the decisions of Sixth Form.
Emily is seventeen years old, grew up in Royal Tunbridge Wells in a middle class family with each grandparent from a different country and has had Sri Lankan, German, Welsh and English influences. She has experienced a variety of schooling systems in the area she grew up in and thinks it's important to give a voice to the students.
