In a recent event, our students attended an inspirational session with Leah Chowdhry the author of “Making a Splash.” The engagement was not only enriching but also provided a unique opportunity for the sixth formers to delve into the author’s experiences and seek insights into her remarkable journey.
Leah captivated our students with her compelling story, focusing on her experiences in India and the driving force behind her decision to swim the English Channel, and becoming the first British Asian woman to swim the English Channel. The author shared candidly about the setbacks and challenges she encountered on her path and how a transformative shift in mindset from “I can’t” to “I can” became the catalyst for her success.
The interactive session allowed students to pose questions to Leah, creating a dynamic exchange of ideas and experiences. The author’s responses not only provided valuable insights into her journey but also served as a source of inspiration for the young minds in attendance. The overarching theme of the session centred on the transformative power of a positive mindset and the ability to turn obstacles into opportunities.
Expressing gratitude for Leah Chowdhry’s time and generosity in sharing her story. Leah’s visit not only left a lasting impression on the sixth formers but also reinforced the importance of resilience, belief, kindness and the potential within every individual to turn dreams into reality.
