Just spent an hour talking about some of the tools you can use to navigate news with young people and encouraging critical thinking and inquisitiveness. Ask yourself: 'does it feel real?'

Visit to Cambridge University

Cambridge University. We may think of an elite institution that unintentionally excludes others from qualifying to attend there for their high standards. However, have broken such stereotypes with the collaboration of their's and society's help. In this write-up, I Omotola Noble will be expressing my experience on attending the Corpus Christi College, University of Cambridge on the behalf of my school: Harris Academy Peckham as well as the fellow regional champions that also attended the event.

Besides perceiving Cambridge as Hogwarts made in flesh, one could possibly imagine an invisible veil that marginalises the vacancies to get into such a foundation. This "insightful experience" as said by one of the regional champions, somewhat fantasy came to life for I'm sure them and I as our feet ( both literally and metaphorically) scratched the surface entering the premises of Corpus Christi college. However, this wasn't just a physical enlightenment; it was a mental insight we also gained by comprehending that many diversities, backgrounds and citizens could be accepted into. By the end of the day, we experienced an evolution from a fantasy to a reality of Cambridge that took place right before our eyes. After we had learnt about it, the University became a place and ideology that we couldn't have imagined to but connected with. The difference between our mindset and views from the start of the day had totally changed by the end of it.

An international student from Latvia, helped us realise that we visitors of the day are fit to also study with the best opportunities for learning if we really want to. Without a shadow of a doubt, hard work and determination are indeed attached to success in learning, however, nationality isn't. It still remains... Much competition is present in entering such an institution. In spite of this, one's ethnic background shouldn't and with both the aid of ethnic minorities and Cambridge, is striving not to be one of the reasons.

It's important to say originally, the enviromnent was alienated to us— especially for a student like me, coming from the popular area of Peckham and being a Nigerian black girl. If not for the noteworthy and prestigious opportunity of the Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge and the efficacious support from my school Harris Academy Peckham, I wouldn't have even been able to assimilate as much as I did from Cambridge.

Overall, the regional champions including myself can precisely proclaim that it was thoroughly "an impressive, dynamic revelation that gave us a great taste of the environment of campus life, university, and lectures". This provided an authentic experience directly from professors and students from the historic library to law lecture. I can now ask from this, who knows in a few years time who will be attending Cambridge University?
