    As term comes to an end, we are sharing our top five #TeamMDX good news stories!
    • 1. #TeamMDX Community Video

    These last few months have been tough and it has been amazing to see what you have been up to in lockdown!

    We love seeing your pets, sports, cooking, painting and dancing! Keep sharing these with the #TeamMDX community; we might be apart physically, but we are still together virtually!

    Check out the video to see how #TeamMDX have stayed connected.

    • 2. Powerful MDX women

    Lucia isn't just a second year Sports Science student at MDX, but is also a top footballer, playing for Tottenham Hotspur Women, in the top tier FA Women's Super League.

    She shows us how anything is possible if you are determined enough to achieve your goals and is very much an example of how to become #MadeinMiddlesex.
