Hannah Gunn: Scholar 2006-2009
15th August 2006: Hannah gets her A-level results - Three A's! She confirms her place at Manchester University, and is offered an opportunity to contest a scholarship there worth several thousand pounds. Scholarship exams are set for early in October.
1st July 2006: Scholarship presentation by Lord Wilson of Dinton, Master of Emmanuel College, Cambridge. Hannah's mentor, Ruth Elwood (P80-84), is there to welcome her as a member of the SOF and its Council.
Hannah was born abroad and grew up in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe,
becoming part of what she describes as the third-culture generation, moving
regularly between countries and schools. She feels very strongly that
Framlingham, and the friendships made there, has been hugely influential
and is something of which she has no intention of letting go.
She is Deputy Head of Pembroke House and Vice President of the Sixth
Form Society, where she had to work hard to maintain morale and enthusiasm
in the face of a change of licensing laws, which meant that most of the
Lower 6th were no longer allowed to drink alcohol.
Although “not sporty enough” to make the school teams, Hannah has always
made the effort to participate in cross-country running, tennis, rounders,
hockey, squash and chess because, she says, she really enjoyed the team
spirit and social opportunities. Never one to resist a challenge, Hannah
took part in the “World Challenge” Everest Base-Camp expedition in the
summer of 2005, for which the fitness tests presented a really serious
hurdle – one which she passed with flying colours. She was surprised to
find that she actually enjoyed cross-country running!
While in the Lower 6th she was invited to represent Framlingham in the
Students’ League of Nations in Geneva, where she so impressed the
judges that they invited her back for following year’s assembly.
Looking forward, Hannah’s intention is to build on her personal experiences
of different cultures, and to use that foundation to learn and appreciate
broader aspects of international relations in both social and business
environments, with the goal of a career in Consultancy . Her immediate
plans are to study International Management at Manchester University followed
by a conversion course to study Law.
