March 4th – Went to the @angelacademe meeting which took place @thomsonreuters office close to Old Street. Caught up with @OhioanInHackney and @walthot.

At the Angel Academe event there were some very interesting pitches including @sheblah from @libertinewomen.

March 9th – Today. I was at @uclnews with many @JCI_London people, actually I think that I may have been the only @JCICanaryWharf person there, but I was asked by @AIESECUCLSOAS to mentor with their @LDNdreamcatcher event. Let me say that it was amazingly put together, really well done. Amazing and inspiring speakers included: @UrbnLawyer, @MissOwusu, @simonjack_says, @DexterDash, @dita4all, @6W2X; and the campus of UCL (University College London) is beautiful.
