Being 18 in 2018Posted on: January 18th 2018
We were delighted to hear former Amery Hill student Georgia Head’s eloquent interview on the BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour Programme: Being 18 in 2018.
Turning 18 can feel like a massive transition from adolescence to adulthood, and a whole new world of responsibility. The programme interviewed a number of young women who are all turning 18 in 2018 and explored their perceptions of being an adult and the challenges they face as they make the transition into adulthood.
The young women speak of the challenges they face as individuals, be that from being a young mum, living with foster parents, being a young carer themselves or living with a chronic illness or condition.
Presented by Jane Garvey and produced by Olivia Cope of the BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour Programme, the interviews are well worth a listen. Catch Georgia‘s interview from 16.47 to 25.55 minutes.
