I was thrilled to have been contacted by the National Centre for Craft and Design's, Learning and Engagement department to be chosen as two of their students' Inspirational Artist for their Arts Award application.
The NCCD has a fantastic programme for the youth to inspire them to get more creative and ambitious as young artists.

As part of my commitment to society and the community , I am often asked to attend talks, seminars, schools and institutions to share my story. A surviving against the odds story that encourages the community and especially the youth to find other routes within their lives through the power of creativity, the arts, entrepreneurship and STEM.
So it was a true honour to have been chosen by North Walsham High School to be a part of their mentoring scheme several months ago with a minimum two year commitment. As an ongoing commitment, I have of course many things in store for my very inspirational students.

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.
