A HARLOW student is heading to Cambridge to study medicine and cites the moment footballer Fabrice Muamba had a heart attack at White Hart Lane as a key spur to his studies.
Jack from Tany’s Dell was a student at Leventhorpe school in Sawbridgeworth.
Jack said: “I am very pleased with my results and looking forward to Jesus College, Cambridge in October.
“I have always wanted to study medicine. I undertook work experience at Princess Alexandra hospital as well as the Hamilton Practice in Bush Fair.
“But I was also at the Spurs v Bolton game in March 2012 when Bolton midfielder, Fabrice Muamba collapsed on the pitch with a heart attack.
“I saw the cardiologist, Dr Andrew Deaner come onto the pitch from the stands. I saw the work the whole team undertook and I thought of all the areas of medicine, it is cardiology that I want to specialise in.”
Jack’s mother, Katy is clearly very proud of Jack’s achievements.
Katy said: “He has worked so hard for this and deserves all the credit. Sometimes we have had to persuade him to stop revising.
“We are all very proud of him.”
