Diversity is such a broad term. To me, it means recognising and celebrating everyone’s backgrounds and experiences and journeys because that’s what makes the world a richer place.

When I think of diversity, I think of people’s uniqueness. Nobody’s ever the same as the person next to them. But even though everyone is unique and different, we all share common bonds.

We’re essentially creating the world’s next leaders, so our students need to make their voices heard to the people in power who are making the decisions.

It’s important to celebrate our differences because people – or groups of people – become marginalised when we’re not seeking out those different perspectives.
