Young Ambassadors

The Young Ambassadors were recently invited to the brand new Microsoft store in Oxford street where they had the pleasure of experiencing their gaming lounge with all the latest technology, discovered the history of Oxford Circus from the 19th Century with Augmented Reality, tried out their DJ skills with Surface Studio and finished the day with an enterprise workshop, where they created and pitched their business ideas.

Henry Onilude, Young Ambassador, aged 23 said “Visiting the store was such an amazing experience. I learnt so much about starting your own business and more. It gave me the motivation I desperately needed. The staff were so friendly and supportive. I am grateful to Peabody for giving us this opportunity”

Nadia Kassab, Youth Development Coordinator said “I am blown away by the whole experience, the Young Ambassadors have had the most amazing experience and are already looking to book in more workshops with Microsoft, I look forward to opening up more opportunities to Thamesmead young people through Microsoft”
