Breaking The Class Ceiling: from child refugee to barrister

April 13, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

So how did he do it?

In a personal take on social mobility, we meet his mentors.

These are the people who gave him a few lucky breaks and showed him how to fit into a world he could barely imagine. But how many people can follow that path? And why should they have to?
