International Women’s Day

17th March 2017

Year 9 and 10 girls certainly were inspired at an event organised by

Young Hackney on Wednesday 8 March, International Women’s’ Day. Miriam, Lesny, Molly, Shekinah, Noreen, Victoria and Jordan represented Stormont House School and met about 100 other girls from Hackney Schools.

They were treated to lunch and met 27 amazing women who had interesting stories to tell about themselves and how they found their career path. They listened to Ronke; a young doctor at Homerton hospital, Luke; a spacecraft engineer working for the European Space Station, Nefateri; an entrepreneur and Anne; a freelance DJ. The

message of the day definitely was to follow your passion and go for it!
