Latest Worker - Projects Development Manager, Ben Szobody June 2, 2017 Curtis James Ben's working life has been documented over 4 different visits and locations. The interview took place in April 2016 and covers his early years, education and transition from the southern state of South Carolina in the USA to Brighton. Ultimately going from homeschooling to university to a job was all one arc in my mind of independent-mindedness and sprinting after something I thought I could do. I think my parents let me go to university aged 15 because they saw how extremely independent minded I was and thought well ‘This is highly unusual, but if any kid can pull this off, it’s this one’. That’s not to say anything about my talents or my smarts, it’s just to say I was a right stubborn bull headed person, so as a result, for much of my life I’ve developed probably an extreme sense that I’m always the youngest in the room, I’ve always got to prove myself and I will.
