Notes from Cambridge University...

Recently a good friend of mine shared this post and I was surprised at the emotive (and often negative) responses it provoked. 

So for the next 10 days and maybe for the remainder of lent: I am going to share ONE THING that summarises my encounters with Oxbridge graduates.

I will not be ashamed or be made to feel like a sellout or conversely, a beggar.... I respect the sacrifices that were made (in both recent and distant history) so I could sit in those classes and walk through those halls. And I appreciate how those experiences (good and bad) shaped me into who I am now.

So, I'll start with Nadine Drummond, fellow island girl (Jamaica stand up!) and South Londoner, studied Law at Cambridge. Taught me "to Be everything I want to be" and live life without regrets.

Now working for Al-Jazeera and living in Doha! Living her dream!!

And if you'd like to see the original photo story that got us thinking - here it is:

These are my words and this is my journey, from 'there to hair'!
My life, the lessons learned in and through love and loves ones; and my hair affairs.
