As a non-profit organization LCSS has organized an event in relation to “Raising Expectations” to encourage and inspire ethnic minority students in London for the entrance Oxbridge universities. West London School was our fourth school to visit. Firstly, LCSS had sent an informative e-mail about the content of the event to West London Turkish School management and discussed the details of the event with Ms. Sadan Gurses to confirm the date and time of the program. The program began at 12.30 and the average of 15 students had attended from year 9, 10 and 11. In the beginning of the program the first guest speaker Emre Kazım made the first entry of the program. He made a short speech about the purpose and activities of LCSS. Following on, Emre Kazım gave a presentation about his sixth form, UCL University and his master experience in Cambridge University. He talked about his journey of being successful, how to be in the university interviews and gave tips and advice to students.

In the second part of the event, Sherife Tekdal gave a presentation about her journey to higher education. She gave a speech about the experience of her sixth form, her entrance to Kingston university and about her social life. She focused on being an intern in different institutions, and she gave examples about her experiences. After their presentation, the students asked questions about studying at university. Students got answers to the confused and unclear questions about their future by asking  Emre and Sherife. Miss Sadan made a last speech to sum up the event and thanked the LCSS team for this successful and helpful event. After the presentation, LCSS team has attended to School’s “Canakkale Sehitleri” event.
