Staff and students at The Sheffield College have paid tribute to health and social care student Reema Ramzan.

Julie Byrne, Principal of Sheffield City College, said: "Staff and students are devastated to hear about the sudden death of Reema Ramzan. We would like to offer our deepest sympathy to Reema's family and friends. Reema was completing a full-time health and social care course with us. She was an outstanding student and has been described as the 'sparkle in the class'. Reema was extremely dedicated and achieved distinction grades across the board. 

"Reema was very highly thought of by staff and students, and will be sorely missed.  She was a kind and considerate young woman who always came into class wearing a huge smile. She was generous with her time and happy to help her fellow class mates who came to her for guidance with their studies. She thrived on discussions on health and social care topics. Reema recently completed a two-week work placement and was determined to go to university where, we all firmly believe, she would have continued to shine. The College is providing support and counselling to all of those affected, and we will ensure that continues for as long as is needed."
