18-year-old Starr was named as the Student of the Year for Health & Social Care during the 2015 Brilliance Awards. Starr said:
“I was shocked to even be nominated; there are so many people more deserving than I am. I decided to enrol at LRC because it’s close to where live and it’s a new College and I wanted to give it a try. If anything I think I’ve had more support than I’d get at other Colleges. They have time to focus on individual students and pick up on the kind of support everyone needs. They have a very holistic approach and they treat everyone as individuals.
“I want to be a Physiotherapist and I would like to stay on at LRC and study for the Foundation Degree in Social Care.”
