A former student from Barking and Dagenham College is proving an inspiring success story with the opening of his new Sports Injury Clinic.
27 year old Tyrone Cassius studied sport at Barking & Dagenham College several years ago and has now opened up his own clinic.
After getting his BTEC at the college, he gained a place at London Metropolitan University to study sports therapy.
With his qualifications under his belt, Tyrone’s long term plan was to open up his own clinic.
Tyrone worked for 5 years, saving and building up his experience until he could afford to rent his own space.
He now rents a space in a building near Clapham Junction where his clinic Specifeye Health and Wellbeing, operates.
Establishing himself in the community and being open for business the last 9 months, Tyrone shared: “It’s been fun but tough.
“I started from nothing but it’s going really well and I wanted to create a brand people want.
“The course was a great starter point and really helped me to get my business started.”
He is now looking to increase his presence by focussing on networking and marketing the business further.
