I was once again very kindly invited to inspire through my own personal story and as to how I ended up in the footwear Industry. Joined by other individuals from various professions, from a high ranked police officer, to solicitors and museum curators. The day was constructed through a series of small grouped talks, inspiring pupils at Sheringham school to think of what other alternatives there are to the usual careers out there today.


My area of expertise was creativity, the arts and designs.

I am always very open to helping schools with their creativity initiatives and on this occasion, I was invited back by St Francis' School as a judge for their fashion show.


Miss Tabitha Wilson, the head of art is a truly forward thinking and energetic teacher who works incredibly hard to push students to achieve unusual works. The art students proved that they they had boundless amounts of innovative thinking and collaborative skill in creating spme remarkable works from recycled materials.


I was joined on the panel by Hertfordshire Universities head lecturer of Fashion and two other boundary pushing fashion industry women with creative years under their belts.

I was very humbled when I was approached by Inspiring the Future to visit one of Cambridge's most deprived schools. Having seen my bio, they thought that what I had to offer through a presentation and workshop would benefit the pupils.


What was inspiring for me was meeting with some forward thinking members of varying industires, including Professor Dame Athene, the renowned physician who led her own presentations, among over notable guests.


The children and staff were incredibly appreciative and as always, I was honoured to have some part to play in helping shape future choices.
