I was contacted by OFSTED outstanding school, Thorpe St Andrew to come up with a project to help invigorate their students. They have removed textiles from the curriculum and they have asked me to work with them to re inspire this area. I have always maintained that the arts are incredibly important for both budding minds and adults. Minimising mental health implications, helping with dexterity, especially in terms of Alzheimer's. Creativity delights us, it teaches us skills in which to mend a broken item, it can innovate and it can help the mind see in other formats.
Look out for this exciting project commencing in November!

As a speaker for schools, I was contacted by St Mary's High School in Croydon to help inspire 130 teenage girls. My first impression was my amazement at seeing only 9 white faces in the sea of expectant faces. It certainly wasn't a diverse school in terms of ethnic diversity.
St Mary's is considered an inner city school and is headed by a remarkable priciple who prides herself on offering her students other avenues in which to take their lives. Hence my invitation. I am always thrilled to do occasions such as this, as in my opinion, it is the schools such as these that need the inspiration to break free from routes that many would think are already set for them.

I was very humbled when I was approached by Inspiring the Future to visit one of Cambridge's most deprived schools. Having seen my bio, they thought that what I had to offer through a presentation and workshop would benefit the pupils.
What was inspiring for me was meeting with some forward thinking members of varying industires, including Professor Dame Athene, the renowned physician who led her own presentations, among over notable guests.
The children and staff were incredibly appreciative and as always, I was honoured to have some part to play in helping shape future choices.
