Student Engagement (RARA) Intern

The support the Dental Institute has given me over my years at King’s inspired me to get involved in the RARA project. I also volunteer as an ambassador at Newham Collegiate Sixth Form, engaging students interested in pursuing dentistry. I balance my full-time degree with a tailor-made shirt business and as a film maker. My film submission was selected as one of 10 winners of the prestigious £10,000 HSBC scholarship award. I have been able combine my interests in dentistry and film-making into unique, valuable projects including Dentist Dilemmas, an online platform challenging misconceptions about dentistry through short films.
