I am always very open to helping schools with their creativity initiatives and on this occasion, I was invited back by St Francis' School as a judge for their fashion show.


Miss Tabitha Wilson, the head of art is a truly forward thinking and energetic teacher who works incredibly hard to push students to achieve unusual works. The art students proved that they they had boundless amounts of innovative thinking and collaborative skill in creating spme remarkable works from recycled materials.


I was joined on the panel by Hertfordshire Universities head lecturer of Fashion and two other boundary pushing fashion industry women with creative years under their belts.

Last week saw the last of the STEM career days at Kings Langley School. To have been invited as an ambassador as a technology and innovation practitioner was really flattering.


It's vital that the emerging generations are somewhat aware of what else is out there and how they can best utilise their skills. Personally I was a youngster who had several interests and perhaps thought I could only actually delve into one career. The great news is that more so than ever, professions are diversifying and skills can certainly be utilised in several areas. Keeping your options open and mind bright!


Sharing my personal story as to how I eventually ended up starting Milly J Shoes, I was thrilled that both the students and faculty found my workshops and story inspiring.


If you'd like me to come into your organisation or school and would appreciate my unusual story for motivational and creative purposes, please do get in contact! It's not a talk solely for the education section but also humanitarian, business and self exploration.


STEM - Scienece, Technology, Engineering, Maths.

International Women's Week saw a wonderful night of inspiring talks and canapes at St Francis' College in Letchworth.


A private girls' boarding school, celebrating International Women's Day through a series of guest talks including ones from Brita Fernandez-Schmidt the UK Director of Women For Women, Wendy Smith, Paralympian and myself!


Our stories all tied in together so effortlessly, despite this not being deliberate!


A truly memorable night filled with members of the public, parents, students and the press. The school kindly saying my talk and singing were both exceptional!

Half of UK brides are late to church, so I can now reveal the shoes commissioned by UKTV. Used as promotional and marketing shoes for the brides' press calls. Creating a series of sizes in a nail biting 3 days for their new show on Watch Tv - Get Me To The Church. Veiled, and great for the bride on the run. With more to come on this!
