What a day I had yesterday! Travelling up to London on the train, we made our way to the impressive Strand offices of Pearson Clinical, which has an awesome panoramic view of London’s Thames landmarks. My hopes were also set high as I had been shortlisted for the Young Person of the Year at the Shine a Light Awards 2018. Receiving the award from 2 previous winners, Gregor Gilmour and Jonathan Middleditch, was a great honour. To have my work with my Teach Us Too campaign recognised by people in the field of speech and language therapy and education, feels like an endorsement of all I am trying to achieve for children yoked with labels that suffocate their learning.
During the ceremony, a film was shared which was recorded at my school a few weeks ago. As you will see below I have been blessed with an amazing bunch of friends.
