"During Patrice’s medical training she came into school to encourage students to take up medicine and explain what was involved. Since graduating she has been an invaluable asset to the school in helping to widen students’ horizons by arranging talks and presentations from both herself and other young professionals in various fields. She is dedicated to helping young people to succeed. We hope to continue and broaden our relationship with Patrice and would have no hesitation in recommending her to work with School Speakers."– Corrine Warwick, UCAS/IAG Coordinator
"Patrice gave an outstanding and engaging talk to a number of our students. Students enjoyed her session and found it enjoyable, interesting and informative. Patrice also answered their many questions afterwards, and we are very appreciative of her time. We look forward to working with her again in the future."– Mr. Éamonn Casey, Careers Coordinator, Caterham High School, Redbridge
“Patrice came to Frederick Bremer School to speak to our Year 11 pupils about going into medicine. As Patrice is a qualified doctor, she was able to give valuable information to our pupils regarding the routes that are available to get into the field of medicine. The students were granted the opportunity to ask questions regarding the excellent profession that Patrice is currently in. It’s not often that someone in the medical field comes into a school to give a talk about a career in medicine so we were incredibly grateful to have Patrice at our school. Coming from an inner London school, Patrice is very much an inspiring young lady who is incredibly determined and that was evident through her presentation. Patrice explained to me that she believes it is important to give back to the youth of today; in the hope that they may feel empowered and encouraged to follow a career path in medicine or any other profession. She reminded the students that with hard work and a great deal of willpower, virtually anything is possible!"– Teacher, Frederick Bremer School
