MULTI-award winning business starlet and motivational speaker Junior Ogunyemi joined award winners for this year’s Celebration of Achievement evening at Farnham Sixth Form College, emphasising the importance of doing something which inspires you.

Principal Dr Mike Potter CBE opened the ceremony, highlighting the incredible achievements of students from the college throughout the last year, including the college’s 99.3 per cent pass rate which makes Farnham one of the highest performing sixth form colleges in the area.

With the support and generosity from trustees of the Farnham Educational Foundation and The Old Farnhamians’ Association, the college was able to celebrate the achievements of 45 students who had won awards, bursaries, student service prizes and scholarships.

During the ceremony, health studies student, Miranda Owusu, shared details of her trip to Ghana which was funded by the John Goddard Award.

Miranda spent eight days volunteering on the diabetic ward at the largest teaching hospital in Accra, where she learnt many useful skills such as how to dress wounds.

To close the ceremony, Junior Ogunyemi spoke to the audience about how he has become one of the most successful young entrepreneurs in the UK.

Junior first stepped into the business scene at age 17, just before going to Queen Mary University of London to study economics, where he made it his aim to raise enough money to pay off his student fees.

He also set up a football coaching academy operating in schools and communities across London, launched a successful publishing company, secured a publishing deal and wrote his first book ‘How to Become a Student Entrepreneur’ in three weeks.

His speech focused on the importance of developing new skills, networking and doing what inspires you, he explained that “experience is a good teacher and learning from other peoples experience is even better”.

There were also musical performances by Elizabeth Collins and Olivia Close. Elizabeth is currently studying music technology at Farnham Sixth Form College, while Olivia is studying drama and theatre studies.
