A former Barking and Dagenham College student has started his own sports injury clinic at the age of just 27.

Tyrone Cassius did a BTEC at the college before gaining a place at London Metropolitan University to study sports therapy.

His long term goal was to open his own clinic so after graduating he worked for five years, saved and built up his experience to be able to open Specifeye Health and Wellbeing in Battersea, south east London.

He said: “It’s been fun but tough, starting from nothing…I wanted to create a brand people want.”

Tyrone is now looking to increase his presence by focussing on networking and marketing the business further.
