    Dear all,

    Blind Ambition is a student-led project that tackles inequalities in access to university, as disabled students remain a vastly underrepresented group in higher education.

    The aim of the project is to allow an opportunity for blind or partially sighted students to have a positive, accessible and welcoming experience at a university. The one-day event hopes to offer accessible and engaging activities with friendly helpful role-models.

    We have arranged guest lectures, a Q and A session with PhD students, a campaigns and societies fair as well as a ninjutsu session.  We would be really grateful for any PhD students who would be interested in taking part in the Q and A panel. This would involve giving a 2 minute lay (suitable for children) overview if your research and answering any question.  The event is taking place on 5th July, and I apologise for the short notice but we need to let the University know names of volunteers by the 5th June at the latest.

    Many thanks,
