Drew completed high school at Brighton College in the United Kingdom, achieving outstanding results across all subject areas and consistently receiving the Headmaster’s Award each year.

While at Brighton, Drew participated in the Cambridge Lower Sixth Chemistry Challenge and earned Roentgenium, the highest award, which only 0.76% of students achieve. His result secured him a place at the residential chemistry camp at Cambridge.

At A-level graduation, Drew received the prestigious Bayliss-Smith prize for physics and department awards for physics and chemistry.

Drew spent his summer backpacking in Europe then travelled to Dart Container Corporation in Mason, Michigan, to spend a week with their team of mechanical engineers and operational specialists.

“I really enjoyed my time at Dart Container. While I previously had a general understanding of engineering as a subject, visiting Dart Container showed me how it is applied in a career setting. Overall, I have a better appreciation of the world of engineering since this trip and I believe I have been exposed to the field in a way I could not expect from traditional education."

Drew is completing his first year studying engineering at the University of Cambridge in the UK.
