To this end, Esther sat for 3 Grammar Schools and 6 leading independent schools and got admitted into all 9. The Grammar/selective schools include Henrietta Barnett (the UK’s number one Grammar school for girls); Latymer and Dame Alice Owen.
A superachiever with a strong focus on academics, she won scholarships in all the 6 private schools including North London Collegiate, Haberdasher Aske Girls, Downe House, St Albans High School for Girls amongst others.
Esther also excels in sports. She is a keen swimmer, an enthusiastic netball, lacrosse, hockey player and gymnast to name only a few of the sports she plays. On top of all this, Esther is also a viola player and an outstanding actress having taken part in many plays.
Esther believes that with God nothing is impossible hence is not afraid to take on new challenges. From two, Esther had visualised being in her present school and had them written out on her bedroom wall proving Philippians 4:13 ( the first scripture she knew) that with God she can do all things.
