Student of the Week

Abi Mills
Abi Mills
Possibly one of the most recommended students for SOTW, Abi Mills deservedly merits a double celebration this week, having already won a Jack Petchey award (along with Yoey Pang) for being an “Outstanding Achiever’ - a title which, under closer scrutiny, may be an understatement.
 
It seems that the Jack Petchey Foundation’s mantra of “If you think you can... you can” is particularly apt for Abi. She thinks she can… and we do too.
 
Abi has a very busy schedule - she is a tutor group rep, as well as being a key member of the EDucators our equality and diversity group. She has been instrumental in promoting Black History month and campaigning against homophobia, producing some excellent animated videos to highlight her points. She is also engaged in our mentoring programme helping L6 students with biology and she’s hoping to help out with this years prom committee. At home she is studying piano, guitar and drums and has recently developed an interest in jazz. Between all of this, she also does A levels.
 
Abi is studying biology, psychology and English literature and is interested in studying Cognitive Neuroscience at university. She’s had offers for US scholarships as well from Brunel and Herts and has a big decision to make about where she studies next, which may depend on what is happening in her football career...
 
…because Abi plays for Arsenal Ladies U21’s.
 
Playing for Arsenal has to be about as good as it gets for a teenager living in Islington. She’s been part of the squad since she was 10 and has represented England since she was 12. She’s travelled the length and breadth of the UK and played in Holland, Norway, Ireland, Germany - you get the picture - she can play.
 
She currently plays right midfield and hopes to keep her position in the team going into the next season. She trains hard, all the time and does an amazing job of balancing the many roles she plays both inside and outside of college.
 
As well as being an Arsenal fan she is, of course, a Woodhouse fans and thinks her two years here are "going past way too fast” and admits she doesn’t really want to leave us...
 
“I’ve grown, matured and solidified who I am as a person since being here and consider myself fortunate and privileged to have Woodhouse on my Twitter bio. I’ve met some amazing people, it feels like family… like home."
 
We wish Abi every success in both her football and academic life, and are already looking forward to her returning Alumni speeches in the years to come.
