Whilst attending college Amy has also worked part time on her dad's livestock farm and at Mr G's Bowling Centre in Brandon.
Her diploma course involved sports instruction, sports massage, teaching classes, creating sessions, planning and performance.
“I'm going to take a gap year and try and get a sports job and help my dad on his farm,” said Amy. “Have a little while out.
“I'm hoping to pass my driving test in a few months so I can go anywhere.”
