I didn’t choose to come into the student world. But there’s something about it that gets hold of you and won’t let go. It’s being surrounded by that energy of constantly wanting to be better, to change… to change the world. Every year you get a new influx of people who think ‘this is going to be amazing’. So no matter how jaded you feel, no matter how exhausted, in they come and it just re-energises you. They blow me away all the time. All the time. Our students, they’re amazing.
