Friends of GT Scholars – Check out our latest scholar spotlight!

Happy Friyay!! I hope you’re well and have been keeping warm this week? Autumn is here, and soon winter will be on our doorstep! Luckily with the recent update to the government’s safe travel list, we don’t have to face the winter all huddled up at home! You can book a flight and soak up some winter sun in the Canary Islands or even head off to Greek Island of Mykonos without having to quarantine for 14 days on return! *For now!

Can you help a fellow friend of GT Scholars?
Do you know of someone in your network who works as a professional Psychologist or have professional experience working in the Social Science field? One of our mentors was matched with a scholar that is interested in this career field, and we’re looking for someone who can give her more information about studying and working within the Psychology and Social Science field. If you know of someone who can help, please send me a quick email, and I’ll set up an introduction.

Youth board member, Laura shares her experience as a mentee!
We’ve taken a walk down memory lane looking back at some of the feedback we received from our scholars. In our latest spotlight interview, we spoke to Laura, who was on the Bright Ambitions tutoring & mentoring programme. Laura shares her story and says that tutoring helped her to improve her maths grades and that mentoring helped her tremendously with time management and planning for the future. If you have a few minutes, you can read the full interview here!

Are you InQUIZitive?
Have you taken our Volunteer Persona Quiz yet? We set up the quiz as a bit of fun for you to find out your Volunteer Persona. The quiz will only take about 2-minutes to complete, and it’s filled with a tonne of fun gifs. The questions might seem a bit random but so far, we’ve been getting it right. Feel free to let us know what you think about your result? Did we get it right? Thumbs-up or thumbs-down?! Take the quiz here.
