Costs Drafting History: Began training in September 2018

- Emergency Protection Orders

Profile: I won several awards at university, including the Deans Award for having one of the highest grades in the faculty of humanities. I dance Lindy Hop and Charleston in my free time. I volunteer as the Assistant Beaver Scout Leader at Stakeford Scouts. With time off, I read and, attempt to, teach myself piano
Claim to fame: I wanted to be a baker when I was a teenager so I have a skill for making over-elaborate baked goods such as tiered cakes, marshmallows etc. I used to do charity bake sales and raise several hundred pounds per event.
Favourite film: I saw Bohemian Rhapsody fairly recently and adored that.
