6: Conversation with Lesley on her passion for education, how race plays out in the system & being part of the solution

I really enjoyed speaking with this last guest and honestly I feel like we only scratched the surface! Lesley's passion for education guided her path and led her to her current research for a PHD at Oxford university. She tells us more about this journey and how she overcame challenges to get here. We also talk about how race plays out in the education system. We get deep into the building blocks of her faith & she shares one of my favourite responses so far to the question of what light means to her.
