Fashion student designed for success
Hackney Community College Fashion student Ting Ting Meng is nearing her dream of becoming a top designer after being offered a place at the prestigious London College of Fashion.
The Level 3 student has had a remarkable journey to success so far – travelling to the UK from China alone at age 14, unable to speak any English.
She enrolled at HCC in 2008 to pursue her passion for fashion design and progressed successfully to the highest level while studying ESOL at the College to improve her English.
Ting Ting, now aged 21, aims to build on the valuable skills she has already learnt at the College to achieve her career goal.
She said: “Hackney Community College has been very good to me. The teachers are so helpful and dedicated to supporting us. I’ve had a lot of help with my English and with the skills for my career in fashion. I’m proud of what I have achieved, and my family in China are very proud of me too.”
