Yesterday I was photographing business leaders who were in Gloucester to talk about ways to help prepare school leavers for the working world. This was all very interesting, but the highlight for me was a speech from former winner of the BBC's The Apprentice Michelle Dewberry telling the seminar how she had left school at 16 with the goal of getting pregnant and moving into a council house. She talked about how her life as a teenager revolved around visiting her boyfriend in prison.
Since The Apprentice, Michelle has established two online businesses and also works as a digital consultant. She is a weekly pundit on Sky New's Sunrise programme and her true passion is helping people to get their career on track, to support this, she is a ambassador to the Prince's Trust.
