    My fantastic pupil

    One of my former students has been awarded a scholarship with MIT in the USA.
    Thats quite a trip for a young person from the UK and its even more daunting when the person involved is a girl.
    Im very proud of her but, unfortunately, cannot claim any credit for her success.
    Ive known her since she was 11 and from the beginning I recognised "here is a special person"
    She went away to 6th Form College a few years ago so I was very surprised when she turned up today to say goodbye and very embarressed when she made some exceptionally kind remarks about my teaching style.

    (I teach up to GCSE at age 16 and she is 18 of course.) I have to say I was jolly pleased at her thoughtfulness.

    All this, anyhow, has prompted me to Google for opportunitiues open to females in computing and much to my surprise I found this. ...

    Very well done Canonical and the Ubuntu Community for setting up such a facility. It needs to be better publicised.

    Very well done to my former pupil as well. An exceptional young lady

    very nice indeed, she looks like she has lots of potential and bright future ahead of her. I hope you dont lose touch.
    When close to achieving you quit! If you don't try you failed. Real Winners are not afraid of losing.
