Hi I’m Alice Wood and am just about to go into my third year studying Politics. I can’t wait to be a part of the Creative Confidence project, working with the rest of the team to help show children that imagination, innovation and curiosity can come in so many different forms! I really hope that the book we publish, and the accompanying materials and workshops, will instil confidence in students and help them to make the most of opportunities and experiences that come their way in the future.
