When I return to Bolton School to talk to pupils about entrepreneurship, my message is 'to go for it'. This is an attitude that I had instilled in me during my time in the Girls’ Division where my curiosity was fuelled and I became interested in ideas. Through a blend of excellent teaching, pastoral care and myriad extra curricular opportunities I was given the confidence to pursue new things.
