“Hi my name is Sid Parker, I’m a former Franklin student. I recently graduated in Medicine at Newcastle University. I can’t begin to tell you what a laugh it’s been. Sure there have been some serious aspects and the course is hard work, but I’ve met so many great people and done so much in addition to my degree that it’s been like one long party.
One of the best aspects of my time studying Medicine was when we drove an Ambulance to Mongolia which we donated on our arrival. It was the trip of a lifetime and really opened our eyes to what the wider world is really like.
I have the life I always wanted; planning and commitment made it possible”.
