Introducing Leona

by Leona Awoyele on 15 January 2018

Hi all! My name is Leona and I am the new Recruitment and Outreach Officer for Lucy Cavendish. I studied Religious Studies at The University of Sheffield, before continuing with my Masters in Public Humanities. I graduate this month!

Whilst at Sheffield I was involved in several Outreach programmes, and so I am really excited to get stuck into my new role. Simply put, my job is to encourage women over 21 to consider applying to Lucy Cavendish.

I hope to organise several outreach programmes throughout the next few months, including visits to Further Education colleges and working closely with the other Mature Colleges to create more accessible outreach opportunities for potential students at Cambridge. At the moment I am looking at working with Murray Edwards College and Newham College to organise a collaborative Outreach event.  

Hopefully I will be able to meet a few of you throughout the year. If you have any questions, or you would like to book a visit to your FE College, please do not hesitate to get in contact with me at I look forward to hearing from you,
