After some work experience in respiratory physiotherapy I realised that this was the subject for me,” Emma explains.

“I was lucky enough to escape any injury while playing and was originally looking at working in sport.”

She added: “Being Head of House has helped my leadership skills and confidence and made me think about the lives of others.
