MM63 – Motivating Teens: When the Odds Are Stacked Against You with Sekela Ngamilo

Sekela Ngamilo is an ambitious student about to take up a place at the University of Oxford to study Jurisprudence (Law). A proactive individual, her interests stretch beyond academia, leading to her engaging in a variety of projects such as acting in two plays at Shakespeare’s Globe and reading Emmeline Pankhurst’s ‘Freedom or Death’ speech at the opening of the 2017 Women’s March. She hopes that her journey to Oxford can inspire others from disadvantaged backgrounds by highlighting how they too have the right to dream and aspire to achieve great things!

3 Key Points:

– A disadvantaged background cannot disqualify your greatness.
– Closed doors have a wonderful ability to lead you onto new rewarding pathways.
– Keep PUSHING forward with a group of people who push you forward and you’re pushing forward too.
