A huge congratulations to Year 1 student Santa for winning 2nd place in an online singing competition! Santa got in touch with us this week to share her singing success story with us and say thank you to all the staff for helping to keep her positive during lockdown…
“My name is Santa Ketrina!
I am currently studying at Long Road Sixth Form College in Year 1, learning Fashion & Textiles Art, Media and Photography as my three A level subjects. About a week ago I had a singing competition online, which was supposed to take place in Belarus in April but was rescheduled to take place online this month, due to current situation. At first, I was quite disappointed that I wouldn’t be able to travel all the way to Minsk and sing on an actual stage. However, understanding the difficult time our world is going through right now, I tried my best to stay positive and create a simple singing video, using equipment I own at home.
In the end, when I finally found out I became second place winner and also got invited to Berlin and Bulgaria for more competitions this year, I felt surprised and motivated to carry on participating in many more singing contests.
I worked very hard on this song and I think it was worth sharing with college, as I wanted to say thank you to all staff for optimistic mood and support they bring to students everyday, even during lockdown. Thank you to all staff.”
