Our Careers team is appealing for alumnae to help teach 17/18-year-olds how to overcome hardship by sharing their own experiences of facing challenges and building resilience.
Alison Matthews, Head of Careers, says: “In the face of such uncertainty in the world at the moment it is important for our UVI to hear from others about how they have dealt with difficult times and overcome those difficulties, for some it may even have ended up being a really positive experience.”
They are looking for former LEH students who would be prepared to share their experiences of overcoming adversity, whether through ill-health, personal issues or career challenges, in a special session on Wednesday 30th
As the uncertainty around social distancing measures come the autumn remains high, we are looking for alumnae who would be willing to be involved either in a session face-to-face or via Teams, or even pre-record a short video about their story and how they have overcome adversity in some way.
It’s not until you get older that you start to realise that strength doesn’t come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming the things you once thought that you couldn’t do.
If you feel able to share your story, please email email@example.com
. Thank you very much.
