I felt very privileged to be invited into Dean Valley Primary School to talk to the year 6 children about my career from the time I left School to now, running my own business as a Travel Counsellor.
The children were amazing, asking so many questions including do I have my own private jet!
The children were also asked to create a North America brochure, each child was given a State and they had to make their page look interesting, informative, using creative writing and most of all stand out from the rest.
I returned a couple of weeks later to judge and announce the winner. I sat in the class room for a while and it soon became clear that there was no chance of choosing a winner so quickly. The results just blew me away. These children are only 10 years old and their work was just extraordinary.
Because of this I decided to take it home and read through each and every one of them carefully as well as asking a few of my family and friends to choose their top three. I felt this was the fairest way considering hours of work was put into each and every page.
After lots of consideration we have chosen our top three!
