‘It took me a while to realise it was naive to think we all had an equal opportunity to thrive. We don’t. I want to help to change that. Luckily, I have found a place where I can use my experience and bring my passion to work with a group of wonderful people who also care deeply about reducing disadvantage in our society.’
