I have met some of the Ambassadors but not all of you. As a group we respect the principles of equality and diversity and this got me thinking - how diverse are we?
So I am kicking off by giving some facts about myself in the hope that others will join in and we can then judge how diverse we really are.
Here goes - I was born in Sunderland, Country Durham which changed to Sunderland, Tyne and Wear at a later date. My parents brought me to Oxford in 1955.
I passed the eleven plus and went to Cheney School (a technical school) after point blank refusing to go to an all girl's grammar school. I took the technical course (only the second girl in the school to do this) and went on to gain 11 'O' levels.
I got engaged at 18, married at 20, had two children and was divorced at 30.
Throughout my life I have done several jobs and never really followed a career path.
My daughter has two children and now works as a nurse at the John Radcliffe.
My son has had several career changes and currently works as a service engineer.
I am now retired and live with my lovely rescue cat in the council house I have occupied for 52 years.
So you see nothing exciting - I tick a few statistical boxes (white,female,divorced, retired) so how about you? Will you reveal something of yourself so we can add to the group's diversity?
