I am a second year History undergraduate in the school of History, Classics and Archaeology where I am currently studying topics ranging from eighteenth century consumerism to Russian life under Lenin and Stalin. This year I have also been a  committee member and Press Officer for Newcastle University Entrepreneur Society which has served to encourage my passion for communication with the public. It was this passion that drew me towards the IWNE project.

I think that art can communicate in ways the written word cannot, most importantly by allowing the viewer to draw their own conclusions about the meaning of a piece. Together with the incredible stories of the female subjects of the exhibition, I believe that the imagery of this project is truly inspiring. I have been excited by the prospect that, like me, someone may come to the exhibition and be stirred into taking action by the stories of women who have done amazing things with their lives.
