Students Inspired by Plymouth Guest Speaker 

Year 11 students were left feeling both positive and motivated following a visit from local motivational speaker Stephen  Seki.

From farmer to pharmacist, we met the amazing Plymouth man who is inspiring the city's youngsters.

Stephen is an incredibly passionate and engaging speaker with a powerful message.  Going against the odds to become a pharmacist Stephen is now committed to sharing both his story of transitioning from life in a Ugandan village to the many challenges he faced when he came to the UK aged 10 and unable to speak, write or read English. He shares the various strategies that helped him get where he is today with students. 
His unique insight about the education system allows students to see that nothing is impossible if you never give up. This is the message that Stephen Seki shares with every student.
