Education is not just confined to a classroom. Over the past year there has been a disparity in the quality of education provided to students.
I want to ensure that motivated students - who want to reach outside their comfort zones - have the tools they need.
Students need to develop their personal brand and explore new opportunities - I want to provide trusted advice and insights from graduates and professionals to help all students succeed.

MENTAL HEALTH AND RESILIENCE
I believe it is important for the toolkit to include help regarding metal health and resilience. This is an issue that is gaining greater importance as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
As students challenge themselves it is important to build resilience and learn more about the importance of mental health to ensure they are ready to tackle new challenges.

In order to make sure that the information is as beneficial as possible for students, I hope to form an Advisory Board with Graduates, Admissions Tutors and Professionals.

I passionately believe that No Student should be Disadvantaged and I want to help provide the tools and support for students to explore their passions, take risks and defy expectations.
