“My life was transformed by a bursary and since then I have been passionate about providing similar opportunities to as many people as possible. It is what gets me out of bed in the morning. For me the creation of SpringBoard, based on the work of the Arnold Foundation, is one of the proudest moments of my life. Royal SpringBoard is transforming lives on a scale that is truly helping address the issues of social mobility and inequality in the country.”
