"Having been educated in a very open mixed school and within a family where my grandmother was an engineer (a proper qualified one), I used to think that being a female would not need to be a consideration when looking at what I wanted to do with my life.
With time, and a recession, i began to notice patterns emerging in the world around us and then , at Christmas, i was asked by one of my niece’s why was it that i wanted to do a “boy’s job”…
The time seems to be right for what I can only define as a global awakening . A realization that unless all of us work to break perpetuated patterns, those children, boys AND girls, who are part of our lives will not feel the freedom they should in choosing a path to follow."
