Our Year 9 pupils were fortunate and privileged to have received a presentation from activist, writer, public speaker and worldwide head of culture and inclusion at M&C Saatchi, Sereena Abbassi, who also serves as an advisory board member for diversity-promoting platform The Other Box.
Sereena talked openly and frankly to the pupils around her career journey, and the journey they are beginning as part of their GCSE’s. She talked about the opportunities and chances they have in front of them, and taking each opportunity with both hands. Sereena’s message was clear – never give up to pursue every avenue to be the best that you can be in your chosen pathway and career.
Sereena spoke about barriers and obstacles, and that each and every one of us face different ones in our lifetimes. However, her message was clear in that every pupil can achieve despite some of the obstacles they may face.
