Hope said:

“It was a tough choice but I’m more passionate about art and the course at Edinburgh is amazing not to mention the city.  I am incredibly excited and extremely relieved.

“The teachers at Newcastle High are incredible and very nurturing – everyone cares so much about you and works hard to make sure you achieve your potential.  I will be sad to leave, devastated in fact, but I’m excited and ready to go at the same time.”

Although Hope has chosen Painting she still hasn’t completely abandoned Fashion and has already made some clothes for Uni, as well as upcycling some of her old clothes.  She added: “There is always a chance that I will pick up the fashion later on.”
