As part of International Women’s Day, students at St John Bosco Arts College were lucky enough to welcome Tori James, an intrepid explorer and motivational speaker.
Tori spoke to students about her experiences, being part of the first all-female team to race to the North Pole, and the youngest British woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest and how she overcame negative stereotypes of women when completing these gruelling challenges.
Headteacher, Anne Pontifex, said: Tori also spoke about the importance of the ‘3 Ps’ when striving for your goals – passion, preparation, and perseverance.
“Students were enthralled by the fantastic experiences that Tori shared and were inspired to achieve their own goals and to “dream big”.
“Students were left with the message that they should set themselves ambitious goals and remember that anything is achievable with the right frame of mind!
“Our thanks to Tori for leaving the students feeling inspired by a great role model, what better way to celebrate International Womens Day than with an inspirational speaker”.
