Natalie Dean OG with Y10

The Y10 girls listened to the key note speaker- Natalie Dean OG who shared her achievements since leaving WGHS.

Natalie went to study International Buisness Management at university and during her placement year worked within sales for Enterprise Car Rental. She finished university with a very good 2:1 and went on to a Graduate Scheme for BT in sales.

During her time working she felt she needed more of a challenge and applied for BBC Apprentice and got through the interview proccess and made it to the TV in which she found it a really valuable experience and it gave her more opportunities for work once she left.

After appearing on the show Natalie was offered a Masters course in Buisness which was funded and she was then able to go to Colombia for an exchange to experience a different culture.

Natalie told the girls that they should take every opportunity they are presented with as they never know where that may lead or what valuable skills they will gain.

Thank you for coming and speaking to the girls Natalie.
