все ж, всюди добре, а вдома найкраще😌 раніше була впевнена, що ця фраза не про мене, поки не переїхала. Я обожнюю будь-які поїздки, подорожі, мене важко було змусити побути вдома цілий день..але тепер розумію, що сумую і чогось не вистачає. Хочеться інколи того домашнього затишку, дуже💔 поки була в Шепетівці - чуть не плакала, а-ля "верніть мене в Київ", я хотіла до любімиих дівчаат, в свою кімнату, в університет, на Хрещатик😁 а тепер, коли говорю з мамою, щоразу повторюю, що вже скучилаа.. і усвідомила, що в Шепетівці теж непогано, якась там дужее "своя" особлива атмосфера
Проводьте якомога більше часу з рідними людьми, друзями та коханими, цінуйте їх і частіше кажіть, як сильно любите💕

CELEBRATING BLACK YOUTH EXCELLENCE AT UK SECONDARY SCHOOLS
HEAD BOYS & HEAD GIRLS 2018/19
INTERVIEW: Tameika Bamfo, Head Girl, Bishop Challoner Girls School, Shadwell, Tower Hamlets. We celebrate her & wish her more success🙏🏾.
“On becoming Head Girl, I had to submit a written application detailing why I wanted to be head girl and why I would make a good head team member.
Actually, I applied to be Deputy Head Girl because I didn’t really believe I would be good enough to be in the position. I didn’t have the confidence to be honest, because I knew as head girl I would have to do loads of speeches and talks which is something I struggled with, as I’m really quiet and like being low key, instead of being the centre of attention.
After the written application, we were shortlisted for the interview process with the Head of Sixth Form and the Head of my school. In the interview, I actually mentioned the fact that I didn’t want to be Head Girl. Despite that, they chose me because they liked my humility and that my biggest goal for being a leader, was to inspire others to be leaders. They reassured me that my confidence would get better over time.
As head girl, I had to plan many speeches. I spoke on the topic of ‘Legacy’ to younger students which was about not allowing small failures to determine the person they could be. I used my own example of how I was not doing well in preparation for my exams with a few months to go, but with hard work I ended up with 3 9s, 3 A*s and 3 As in my GCSEs.
After the speech many of the students and teachers told me how they were inspired, and at that point, I realised how special being a head girl was. It became less about my confidence and more about how confident I can make other people. So I haven’t regretted being given that position.
My school is in East London which is highly deprived, with about over 60% of students on pupil premium. Most of the students are from ethnic minorities so I think being able to relate to most of the student body and being black and a female, allowed most of them to relate to me as well, showing them that most things were possible, especially as I have secured offers for my uni places.”
