My words to share with others

Getting things wrong is fundamental to getting them right. We must never be afraid to fail as learning is vital to success.

My proudest achievement

Looking after my grandmother when she was terminally ill and did not want to go into a care home. She was inspirational and looked after all her grandchildren throughout our lives. I am proud to have given her back a little in return.

My thoughts on feminism and women’s suffrage

Feminism and suffrage means striving for opportunity and equality for future generations.  Everyone should be able to achieve their full potential no matter their gender and society must aim to leave no one behind.
