Former Castle View student now studies Business Admin and Management at Bacone College in Muskogee, Oklahoma.
Cullen started his journey at Seevic studying the BTEC Level 2 Business course where he achieved the highest grade possible - D*. He then continued onto the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business, achieving grade D*D*D before heading to America on a football scholarship with FirstPointUSA.
Here is what Cullen, 19, had to say about his time at college:
“Seevic, firstly, prepared me for the course in which I am now studying. I had many good teachers and they all helped me to achieve a high grade.
“Tutors and staff are always around to push you in the right direction and help you to achieve goals in which they have set as well as your own personal goals.”
Whilst at Seevic Cullen also created his own business as part of the Young Enterprise scheme. Along with three other peers the group sold candles whilst making profits along the way. The group even met the Mayor at the regional competition held at Seevic.
Lambird added: “Seevic was different to other sixth forms and colleges in a positive way; it had a more relaxed atmosphere and you were treated like an adult rather than a schoolboy. You were given more freedom.
“I would recommend Seevic to others as you have fun alongside learning. You meet some great people, students and staff, and you are made to feel welcome.”
Looking into the future Cullen dreams to become a footballer, but in the long run would like to have his own business.
