Thanks, Andy! At the start of July, I caught up with the Deputy Head of Longcroft School & Sixth-Form College in Yorkshire, a school I visited in December 2016 supporting their high-achieving sixth-formers ahead of their A-Level exams that year. The immediate response from that half-day session still puts a smile on my face. Every student scored the session at least a 9 out … Continue reading A few words with… Andy Baker
I’ve not posted in a while – my last post being at the very start of September and my last one before that being at the start of August. Apologies for those of you who care or follow my blog. ‘Why have you been absent?’ You ask. To which I respond: What do I even write about now that people want to hear or read about? What do people care about? So I guess, first and foremost, I should type from the heart – speak about my passions. Because that’s what I *emphasis added on I* care about. I am passionate … Continue reading Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.
In the 2012 Olympic year, I studied and graduated with a Bachelors in Law at UCL, one of the best universities in the world for Law, whilst that same year jumping the 2012 London Olympic Games’ standard and finishing ranked number 2 in Great Britain that year.

Matthew 6: 1-4 basically commands me, as a follower of Christ, to give to those in need. After all, Jesus says, “when you give to the needy…” not “if”. I think his views are pretty clear on the issue, right? So why don’t I give money to homeless men and women on the street? I’m pretty passionate about helping others. That’s why I blog.

And that’s exactly the reason why I … Continue reading Why I don’t give money to the homeless
