Claudia Batz, Queen Mary University
Career Coach 2016/17
Working with Future Frontiers has been invaluable in a number of ways, not least in terms of helping me develop highly sought after leadership, interpersonal, and organisational skills.
It has also been instrumental in exposing me to the problem of educational inequality and, most importantly, empowering me with the tools to effect tangible, meaningful social change.
