Monster Confidence Event at Plexal
Ten students from Christ the King: Emmanuel, St. Mary’s and Aquinas attended the ‘Monster Confidence’ Event at Plexal, Queen Elizabeth Park in Stratford.
This event was run by the Stemettes who promote women in STEM (Science, Technology, Maths and Engineering). The students were involved in confidence workshops, mentoring and interview practice. They also met many inspirational women who currently work in STEM. It was an inspiring day for all.
Annakaye Wilmot, who is studying BTEC Applied Science, said 'I enjoyed the conference as the whole event gave a great importance of women exploring and gaining jobs within fields that are mainly male dominated.'
Sabrina Toshi, who is studying A-level Maths, Physics and Chemistry said 'Once the "Monster Confidence" event started, I enjoyed every single moment. I had the opportunity to meet and talk to professionals from some of the biggest, worldwide companies.'
Ashleigh Powis Frost, a BTEC Applied science student, found the CV and interview practice session particularly interesting.
