A star student in Orpington has won an award after he aced his diploma and achieved a top attendance record.

Daniel Naranjo-Rodriguez,18, received an Award for Excellent Performance from Sky TV presenter Michelle Dewberry at the Student Awards Ceremony 2017.

Daniel praised London South East Colleges where he took a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Creative Media Production at the Orpington Campus.

Collecting his award, Daniel said: "I’m totally blown-away by this. I didn’t expect to win an award and it has crowned my entire experience of the college very nicely indeed. I’m very proud, as are my mum and dad.

"I have had just the best two years at London South East Colleges. I’ve learnt so much more than I expected and feel very well equipped to start university next term.

"I am looking to become a cinematographer; it’s a very big ambition and I’m determined to make films for a living."

Daniel will start a Media and Communications BA (Hons) Degree at Goldsmiths University in September.
