Congratulations to Isaac Newton pupil Halema Anjum who is our monthly Young Citizen Award winner for September.

The 16-year-old from Spencer Road, Seven Kings, was nominated for getting top grades in her GCSEs as well as being a brilliant trumpeter and performing in several famous music venues across London.

Halema also mentors and coaches young musicians at the academy in Cricklefield Place, Ilford.

She said: “I am incredibly honoured to receive this award and recognition. Never in my dreams did I imagine I would get this far.”

As one of the monthly winners of the Recorder/Rotary Young Citizen Award, Halema will receive a £30 voucher from the Exchange Shopping Centre.
