My name is Jess Riley-Siggins I was born and raised on the Wirral, Merseyside.
From a young age I loved the outdoors and always preferred the more 'hands on' approach when faced with a challenge. Therefore deciding what I wanted to do when I left school was easy. I signed up to the Royal Navy as soon as it was legal, attending all pre joining tests and interviews whilst in my final year of school.
It's now 7 years later and I still believe it's the best decision I have made. Over the years I believe I have grown and developed from the experiences only the RN can provide taking every opportunity presented to me.
HMS Sultan's Kenya expedition is yet another opportunity that I can not pass up. Although I know I will be totally out of my comfort zone and 100% in the unknown, it is a journey I can not wait to embark upon.
