We Are Essex

Laurence's story

Laurence Wild, Spanish, Portuguese and Brazilian Studies student

"I would like to think the future isn't as scary as it seems."

My motto is to take each day as it comes. You don’t have to always do what people think you should do. It’s important to do what you want and understand that your journey through life won’t be perfect. There’s plenty of blips but everything works out in the end.

I went to watch England women play against Kazakhstan women football last night in Colchester and the atmosphere was amazing! Everyone was cheering on England. It really put a smile on my face to see everyone so enthusiastic about the women’s game. I’d like to pursue a career in refereeing whilst I’m at Essex and train to be a teacher after I finish this course.
