Dear Abdul,
Now the dust has settled on Welcome Week, I just wanted to personally thank you so much for your talk, and for giving the time to come and talk to our students. It was a real pleasure to host the talk, and the students were really inspired by your story.
The BME Powerlist coverage is also looking really good, so well done on that as well
