Earlier today it was announced that George Osborne, former Chancellor of the Exchequer and Conservative MP for Tatton, has been made Editor-in-Chief of the London Evening Standard. As a soon-to-be trainee journalist, it's great to see that journalism continues to be as elitist as ever, and that at the end of the day money and position are worth more than skill and experience.
School became an enjoyable place to be and I learnt so much. I gained good GCSEs and I'm now studying motor mechanics at the City of Leicester College. In the future I want to work for a big company.
Today we get to recognise some amazing young people who have not had the easiest start in life and have had to overcome some major obstacles, which makes it all the more incredible when you hear what they've achieved.
It wasn't easy to walk through those doors and start the programme. But I can now say that it has been a huge help, and I haven't looked back since. I'm really proud of what I've achieved, and The Prince's Trust helped me get my life back - I'm finally happy.
We hope the next frontier for virtual reality is the classroom, where it promises to immerse students--our future leaders--in worlds beyond textbooks and can teach lessons for the real world. If a single image can transcend borders, imagine what virtual reality can do for global compassion.
When you're told that your career, your future and your identity hang on how you perform in a test it has one of two effects: the first is that you freeze and because you cannot cope with the weight of responsibility, you pretend it isn't there.

We face an age-old problem: a complete misunderstanding of young people. The truth is much more complex and nuanced. Youth has become a drawn-out process - young people are taking longer to settle down, buy a house and have children, but they'll also be working far later in life than their parents' generation... Generation Angst are lucky to have been born into a world where technology means their lives may last into the 22nd Century. But they are far from certain that it will be a fun, or even safe, journey. To prevent them falling into deeper cynicism and either checking out completely or looking for populist answers, we need mainstream politicians to emerge who will cherish, nurture and protect the voters of the next eight decades. Even understanding them would be a start.

Now excuse me while I go petition Habbo to create a lesbian battle flag. I think we all need one of those in our lives...
As I saunter back into the waiting room, where my then-was-but-would-soon-not-be boyfriend was waiting for me, I saw him sat directly upright, arms folded across his chest, sleeping lightly as his head tilted to the side. I suck in my chest and throw myself down next to him. We play Gun-Fu on my phone for about 45 minutes, until I am called into the next room.
