Year 13, BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport student Sophie, secured a scholarship to Allen Community College, In America

America’s Community College is much like England’s University so Sophie will head out to study Psychology in the USA, on completion of her BTEC Level 3 Sports course with the Lincoln City Foundation.

“My dream since I can remember was to play football in America, (mainly inspired by bend it like Beckham), so when the opportunity came around to trial for scholarships, I was eager to go. This gives me a chance to test myself against some of the best athletes in the world.

I've had to overcome meningitis, injuries and negative self-talk to get me where I am today, but it’s all been worth the hard work because ‘hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard’. With thanks to my amazing tutors and my academy coach”
