    Hi Chris, I am fine thank you. I just pop into Scope ‘s forum to see what people talk most about these days as I wasn’t here for over few weeks. Sometimes you can find here really interesteting discussion. Sometimes people share their hobbies and area of interests. Check it out in Coffee Launge topic, perhaps you can join yourself too.

    Hi @Ami2301 pleasure to meet you.

    I am the founder of a nonprofit that aims to inspires young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to follow professional careers. I am also an electronic engineering student at the University of York. When I find a bit of time in between I enjoy TV dramas (currently watching The White Queen). 

    What type of things do you enjoy?
    Best wishes,

    I am hoping to work in the electrification of cars or trains, or something along them lines. 

    That sounds awesome. Yes, it's really nice to meet people from different backgrounds and get different views on things. Also, the blogging sounds really great, I do love reading a good blog!

    Good evening Steve, albeit the next evening (sorry about the late reply).

    Thank you for your offer of support, I really appreciate that!

    I was wondering would there be someone in particular who I should go to with problems regarding uni?

    Thank you, Chloe. I'm guessing you're from Yorkshire too? I am a very proud Yorkshire person, especially when it comes to our tea haha 

    How are you finding The White Queen?

    Hi @Ails and thank you for your kind words. I really enjoy working with young people and in fact anyone from disadvantaged backgrounds. The reason I chose young people, in particular, was because I never felt like I could achieve anything when I was in school, as I was from a low socio-economic background and disabled. After years of wasted time falling into the wrong things because I had nothing better to do, I was fortunate another to meet a really inspiring role model, who gave me the confidence to aim higher and start my journey towards engineering. Now I am trying to provide role models to young people in schools so that they can see that anything is possible. (sorry I get too into talking about it and could type for hours haha)  

    Thank you very much for your kind offer of support and I look forward to following your posts!
    Best wishes,

    Chris
