    Story

    My name is Shane Carpenter, currently competing for Team UK at Abu Dhabi for World Skills, Cyber Security. I will be competing against 34 other countries in October 2017.

    Due to limited resources, my parents are not able to afford the expenses for accompanying me in this competition. Their presence could provide me with substantial moral support as they have always been my role models. Throughout their life, they made lots of personal sacrifices and always have prioritised my progress and development over their personal desires. They have ensured guiding me towards making the best decisions for my future aspirations and following my dreams. Without their support, I would not have the chance to represent my country and work towards making my nation proud.

    The past five years have not been easy for them, with many ups and downs, and tears and smiles. however, this is the final chapter of my journey and I believe having them beside me throughout the competition will provide me with the emotional support that I need, and offers them with the opportunity to support me throughout my journey in Abu Dhabi.

    My tutor Suresh Kamadchisundaram believes that “a team UK journey, for many, can represent a multitude of feelings and events, but most commonly, sacrifice. While Shane has been very busy over the last few academic years representing both NESCOT college and BAE systems in the team UK international WorldSkills selection, he has never forgotten his trainers’ and loved one’s contributions — nor has he lost his sense of responsibility to share the opportunities he has been given”

    At this stage I am trying to raise funds to enable my parents to accompany me during this competition in Abu Dhabi. Any donations would be appreciated and any funds raised beyond the target will be donated in education sector with the aim of helping other learners in need to become the best at what they do. I encourage you to support this cause to reward those involved during the journey

      Thanks everyone for their support so far, the support is much appreciated and I hope we can do more to raise money for this occasion. I start my intensive training next week in preparation for the competition. The journey has been amazing and I have loved every moment of it. Thank you everyone who is involved so far, lets continue to raise money for my one of a kind parents, as without them I wouldn't be competing for the UK this October.
