Visit from transgender racing driver Charlie Martin; Good Morning Britain on Friday, SJN on Monday!
On Monday Charlie Martin came to speak in Year 11 assembly and to 30 interested students in other year groups following assembly. Charlie is a British racing driver who is on her way to becoming the first transgender racing driver to complete the Le Mans 24hr. She spoke about her transition and journey into racing driving. She has overcome many obstacles and people telling her that she can’t do things has not stopped her. Charlie now wants to encourage others to not give up and to reach for the stars. She is keen to break down stereotypes and promote inclusivity and came to SJN as a Stonewall role model. She inspired students by saying; trust yourself, break some rules, don’t be afraid to fail, ignore the naysayers, work like hell and give something back.
What an inspirational woman you are Charlie- Thank you for coming to visit Sir Jonathan North College!
