She said “It’s lovely to be invited back to my old College and see how much things have changed and progressed. Diversity Day is a great way to celebrate the different cultures in Camden and I’m delighted to be part of this exciting event at WMC-The Camden College.”
“The displays from all the countries at today’s event show how dynamic the demographics of the College are. Camden is such a great place to live and work as the diversity of its people makes Camden such a vibrant place.”

The dancing and music was lively and was enjoyed by everyone.
