  • Ruth Amissah

    Student, Leeds College of Building

    The financial status of Ruth’s family never allowed them to live in a place that would satisfy all of their needs as a family and as individuals. So growing up, Ruth decided to get in the construction industry, particularly into architecture, to make sure the situation in her family would change.

    “I did not want to do A levels because i knew they were not going to answer the multiple question i had about construction. I knew that i had to go to a construction specified college. That is why i choose to go to Leeds College of Building.

    I am currently in my second year of studying a Level 3 BTEC in Construction and Built Environment so that i can then proceed in studying architecture at university.”
