I’ve been following BAMEed on Twitter for a while now. I have ‘liked’ and retweeted their tweets but this was my first time attending a BAMEed conference.
When my husband and I arrived at UEL, I was looking forward to meeting people from the network who shared my vision for equality and diversity in education.
My friend and colleague @AminaNaz was already there and was talking to a gentleman named Stephen. Stephen was so inspiring; he told us briefly about the history of BAME people in education and informed us that he was part of Obama’s presidential campaign. His words encouraged us to continue being the best versions of ourself and to accept the brilliance within us.
