Samira Abdi

Studied: Functional skills and GCSEs before progressing to Extended Diploma in Applied Science

Destination: Studying for a degree in Diagnostic Radiography at Portsmouth University

Samira Abdi was born in Somalia and grew up in Ethiopia. As a child she wanted to become a doctor as she had a natural desire to support the many people in great need in Somalia. She then joined her family in London and went to Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School, where she completed her GCSEs. Samira enrolled at City and Islington College’s Centre for Lifelong Learning and re-took most of her GCSEs and then progressed to the Centre for Applied Sciences to study medical science.

“I love science and my goal was to go to university. I needed a lot of determination, but also the support of my teachers. The facilities and equipment at the College’s Centre for Applied Sciences were impressive and I was able to learn so much. I love physics, anatomy and physiology and I really enjoyed the dissection experiments we did.”
