My education took me from primary school in a deprived part of inner-city London to Cambridge University. I've felt the transformational impact of studying at a highly-selective university, and from my own experience as a teacher in a tough part of London I'm painfully aware that for young people in less affluent areas this remains only the remotest of possibilities.
I want to change this, which is why I joined The Access Project as Director of Tutoring in 2012. I became TAP's Director in September 2013: since then we've grown from a small local charity and are now working with hundreds of young people from less affluent backgrounds across schools in London and the West Midlands. I'm really excited about working with our amazing team and partners to increase our impact and reach more young people across the country in the coming years.
