Reach Academy Feltham

How did your experiences as a fellow inspire or prepare you for what you’re doing now?

My experience on the programme confirmed that I wanted to spend my career seeking to make Britain a more just country and ensure that opportunity was spread equally. It confirmed that I could make a difference and that the young people I taught could achieve just as much as their wealthier peers.

What's next?

We are going to open a second school in our same community and are working on setting up the “Reach Hub” an organization which will offer wrap-around cradle to career services to our community.
