Hassan

“FBB has helped me see that attention seeking wasn’t really the thing to do. I learnt that if you want to become who you know you can be, you don’t have to be the class clown or the attention seeker. Just focus on your work and don’t distract others, because you’re not just distracting yourself, but you’re disrupting others too. Stefan was funny and really creates a good environment for us to feel comfortable. He helped us to be ourselves and become better behaved. He is one of the main reasons why the group’s behaviour has got much better.”

What are your passions/hobbies?

Pilot
The first point I knew I wanted to be a pilot was in year 6. Other jobs didn’t suit who i was like being a pilot did. I loved travelling and being in control of stuff. I loved the idea of driving and I have always wanted to go out and see the world. I have a natural talent for maths and I'm really good at science as well. I have researched the pathway towards being a pilot. I know I need to get at least a C in my subjects to get there but i don't want to just get a C, I want to get an A* and 9’s. I want to prove that i can go far and become a pilot one day.

What are some of the challenges you’ve faced before FBB?

I used to find it hard to pay attention in class. I used to get distracted a lot in class and would often be chatty. I wasn’t really a bad kid, but the choices I made in class was bad and I knew I needed to change that before the end of the year in order to reach my goals of becoming a pilot.

How has FBB helped you to overcome those challenges?

FBB has helped me see that attention seeking wasn’t really the thing to do. I learnt that if you want to become who you know you can be, you don’t have to be the class clown or the attention seeker. Just focus on your work and don’t distract others, because you’re not just distracting yourself, but you’re disrupting others too. Stefan was funny and really creates a good environment for us to feel comfortable. He helped us to be ourselves and become better behaved. He is one of the main reasons why the group’s behaviour has got much better.

What has been your favourite experience with FBB so far?

FBB Woodrow Tour was my favourite experience. It wasn't just with us it was with other kids from other boroughs. Normally when that happens you think there would be a couple of problems, but it was just a friendly environment and everyone got on well with each other. We got to play football and do some climbing and it builds team skills and built the chemistry of the whole FBB family. Shows how if people open their eyes, they can see beyond their own areas and become friends with people from other areas.

What do you hope to do in the future?

In the future, I hope to have a successful life and a happy life as a pilot.

Quote from FBB Project Lead

"Hassan has come a long way since we started working with him last year. He has a tendency to get involved with the wrong things both inside and outside of school but is starting to allow himself to be more authentic and take ownership over his feelings, behaviours and relationships with others in the group. When he is on track he shows how smart, funny and positive he can be and is an invaluable member of the FBB family at Totteridge."

Quote from your link teacher

"Hassan has come a long way and still has further to go. FBB is helping him learn to control his anger and make him wiser through taking more responsible decisions. He displays a self awareness now that he perhaps lacked 18 months ago and is showing signs of turning into the man we know he can be."
