Remember that gung-ho teen who stopped you at the shopping centre for your signature on a petition or donation to a local cause? You might have just met tomorrow's millionaire entrepreneur.
Ok, then, so what does an engineer look like? This isn't an existential or hypothetical question for me, I would genuinely like an answer. It is remarkable how often I tell people I am studying to be an engineer and the response is just that - Ceri, you don't look like one. It's frustrating that people have these archaic preconceptions!
There's a plethora of non-white talent in the UK that hasn't been viewed by the BRITs let alone the general public. If the awards focused on record quality, rather than record sales then acts like Boy Better Know, FKA Twigs and Kwabs would have received a gong by now.
Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB) church's student community share the belief that all humans are 'created to be creative'. Because the students enjoy enco...
Young people like Aaron Sterrit are capable of breaking down security walls, but they are also capable of making them stronger. The proverbial bike thief employed by the police to help identify top spots for bike theft has become the young digital pro who can spot the cracks in a firewall.
If you're one of the thousands of fashion designers graduating each year and you're anything like me, you've watched countless series from Ugly Betty to Project Runway dreaming of a life working in fashion.

With their support, I learn new things about myself and others every day, and over the years have built up the knowledge I can use to help others achieve their dreams.

Listening to concerns from all corners of London at the launch made me all the more certain that London needs a Mayor that has practical solutions to tackle inequality. And giving Londoners of every age, gender, faith and race a voice is a practical way to do it. That's why I'm running to be Labour's candidate for London's Mayoral election.
Nobody should ever have to feel singled out in life. That's the message I'm trying to get across. The response has been amazing.

I have dedicated the last decade of my working life to helping young people take risks and seize opportunities. And yet, when my daughter decided to leave university early because she wanted to pursue her own path, I thought it was a very bad idea...
