The guest speaker at the event was Daniella Harrison, a former student who is in her second year at Queen Mary University of London, studying English and Drama, having left the sixth form college in 2015. Daniella reflected on her time as a sixth form student as well as her time at university, which sent out an important message to those present about not letting others hold you back and to do what makes you happy.
