I was studying for my Print Journalism degree at Nottingham Trent University. University was a big eye-opener for me and I would recommend it to all the pupils here at Bethany. I also did some travelling around Australia with one of my best friends which was an amazing experience.

What is your favourite novel/music/film and why?

What is your favourite quotation and why?

“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, other for helping others.” – Maya Angelou. This quote really resonates with me because I am a firm believer in giving yourself the best chance in life and also uplifting others around you.

Aside from English and Media, my favourite subject at School was P.E. I really enjoyed the team spirit and competitive aspect, especially when we played hockey games or volleyball matches.

Why do you like working at Bethany?

I think school days are so important in helping to shape young people’s lives and I feel very honoured to be a part of that. Bethany is a very innovative and creative school which I also value.

What interests do you have outside Bethany?

I have a healthy and active lifestyle thanks to my parents. I feel lucky to live in such a beautiful area where I can go for a run or a walk in the Kent countryside. I also enjoy cooking for my family and friends. On a Sunday afternoon, you’ll find me in front of the fire and a film.

There are so many but if I had to choose it would be caravanning holidays with my Grandparents. My brother and I would play for hours and never tire – much to my Gran and Grandad’s dismay!

What is your favourite colour and why?

Rose gold. It was my 16th birthday when I got a delicate rose gold heart necklace and I’ve adored the colour ever since.

If you were not doing what you are doing now, what would you like to do?

Writing for a prestigious celebrity magazine. I’ve always dreamt of interviewing a famous face and having the words ‘written by Daniella Gray’ at the top of the page.
