Benjie Kusita’s incredible achievement was announced at the AoC Student of the Year Awards in Birmingham. Benjie said: “I didn’t expect to get this award. I felt so shocked and proud when my name was announced.” The student was nominated for the award by her proud tutor Lisa Dawkins, who said: “She goes above and beyond what’s expected and she is such an amazing student and person.”

Benjie has competed in various competitions and in Summer 2018, submitted an entry to Brush Wars in London. Despite being unable to attend the competition, her work was highly commended by the judges and was showcased on the organisation’s social media, which garnered compliments from famous TV and Film make-up designers such as Mandy Gold and Julia Townsend.

If it wasn’t for my tutors at Bradford College when I first began studying, I probably wouldn’t have come back to studying after my daughter was born. Johnny Bedford

42


Music

Jonny Bedford It all began when Johnny Bedford was four years old, when he watched his older brother play drums and realised he wanted to be a musician too.

Now the Bradford College Music for the Creative Industries student is playing to audiences across the country after his act Dead Freedom won a spot at HMV’s National Album Day. Having performed publicly since he was 17, Johnny has also been writing his own songs since he was 16. He started to perform under the name of Johnny B, before later changing it to Dead Freedom. The 30-year-old began his studies at Bradford College before leaving to take care of his young daughter. He has returned to the College and is currently in the second year of his degree.

Johnny credits Bradford College with encouraging him to continue following his dreams but has this advice for budding musicians: “Always follow your gut instinct and do what you enjoy. Never pass up opportunities.” John Dey added: “If you produce original music, make sure you enjoy what you’re playing as there’s a good chance other people will enjoy it too.”

John Dey, lecturer in music said: “Johnny has managed to establish a really good support network. It’s good to know the local venues and musicians and he has become a wellknown name on the regional music scene and built up a fanbase. He’s been very dynamic in making this happen.”

Eduard Adam Computer Networks and System Support BSc (Hons) graduate Eduard answered our questions about his time at Bradford College.

What did you like about Bradford College? For me personally it’s been an amazing journey. Looking back, I can certainly say that the course helped me build desired technical skills by today’s tech standards. The variety of technological topics, the equipment provided to perform real labs scenario and the opportunity to be involved in extracurricular activities, tech talks, real projects and competitions were all bonuses that made me enjoy my time at the college.

Yes, besides tech talks and training from alumni that are working for the big companies such as Amazon and Cisco, I had the opportunity to compete in the WorldSkills competition in Kazan, Russia in 2019. After passing regional competitions against other UK competitors, I was chosen to represent Team UK in the skill of Cloud Computing. This is my greatest achievement so far, to which I would like to thank my teachers again, especially Elvir Kesedzic, for his immense involvement and dedication.

What career have you gone on to do? I am currently a Network Support Engineer working in Leeds at SICL Ltd.

Adam receiving his Prize at Canterbury Cathedral

Ophthalmic Dispensing

Star pupil Adam achieves country’s top result in optical exams Adam Robson has set his sights on an exciting future after receiving the best results within his exam category in his year.

The dispensing optician graduated with a Foundation Degree in Ophthalmic Dispensing after gaining the highest marks of everyone who took the Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO) final qualification exams in the UK last summer. He said: “It was amazing, I didn’t expect to do this well. I started as an optical assistant before beginning my degree at Bradford College.” “The tutors at Bradford College did a really good job of preparing me for the exam but nothing could prepare you for the stress of actually being there.” He enjoys his current job at Specsavers, especially his daily interaction with the customers. He said: “That’s the reason I find my job so fulfilling and that I’m so proud of what I do.”

Adam joined more than 300 dispensing opticians and contact lens opticians at Canterbury Cathedral following their ABDO exams. There, he was presented with the Federation of Manufacturing Opticians (FMO) Derek McLaren Prize for top marks. In addition, he was presented by the Association of Optometrists award for highest section A of the Final Qualifying Practical Examination. Dean Dunning, Programme Leader, FdSc Ophthalmic Dispensing at Bradford College, said: “We at the college are all very proud of Adam’s achievements and he fully deserves the national recognition he has received from ABDO. He was a model student throughout the three years he spent here at Bradford College, excelling in all theory and practical elements of the course. I have no doubt that Adam will be an outstanding Dispensing Optician and we wish him all the best in the future.”

Double graduation celebration for married martial arts duo A husband and wife team has made academic success a joint achievement after they both achieved Degrees in Sport and Physical Activity from Bradford College on the same day.

After years of arranging their studies around their three young children, fitting college around the school runs and many hours of intensive home study, Beata and Mohammad Kamran have both graduated with first-class honours.

Beata, 34, who lives with her 37-year-old husband in Bradford and is currently expecting their fourth child, said: “We learnt many things together, developed together, had great fun together, stressed together, shared concerns together, travelled together, and graduated twice together.”

They deserve every bit of what they have achieved. Their academic journey to achieving a first has been quite incredible. Jess Thersby, course lead for BSc Sport and Physical Activity on Beata’s and Mohammad’s achievements
