Bianca Ambrose-Oji (Wolfson, Forestry) addressed the Year 5 and Year 6 Assembly at Bridge Farm Primary School, Whitchurch, Bristol on 20 February, describing her career from her early days in Bristol into a career in forestry which takes her around the world, and how her days in Oxford opened up a whole new world for her.
Matt Stannard, Deputy Headteacher, wrote: “... a well received motivational talk which raised aspirations and showed how university and further education is the key to success. Dr Ambrose was thoroughly engaging and the pupils were very impressed. I would recommend these talks without reservation and welcome any further opportunities from your members”.
