Course: BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science,

Hi! My name is Vanessa and I am 19 years old. I am a 1st year Paramedic student with the London Ambulance Service, studying BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science at the ARU Chelmsford campus.

I moved to Chelmsford from ‘up north’ just outside of Durham, where I have lived all of my life! Since as young as I can remember, I have loved to dance, including ballet, tap, contemporary and street, in which I have performed several times in the West End of London, and I am a keen skier too! In my spare time at university, my friends and I enjoy training once a week for netball, alongside working for the ARU Employment Bureau as a Student Ambassador.
