MSJ Young Alumnae: Inspire Me!

Can you nominate someone inspirational? Read on to find out more about our MSJ Young Alumnae project.

In 2019, Malvern St James completed a very valuable and award-winning project called Malvern Alumnae 100 which showcased some of our most remarkable and talented alumnae; those who have demonstrated success in careers, and also those who have taken the path less travelled, done interesting and pioneering things, and/or who have dedicated time to social enterprises or charities.

This project has been an overwhelming success. Girls, staff and parents are often to be seen reading the boards, and chatting and commenting about them. It has a lasting value and we continue to be very grateful to everyone who is part of this. 

Malvern Alumnae 100 included Old Girls of all ages in a permanent exhibition displayed on all the main corridors around school. We would now like to do a similar exercise with younger Old Girls – specifically those in their 20s and 30s – who are similarly inspiring, because they’ve found a lifepath they love. You could have found your dream job (be that working in the City or running a remote smallholding), be doing something that will be making a difference to all of our lives in the future (eg, medical research, renewable energy, sustainability, social projects which improve our environment and communities), campaigning for something that has meaning to you and others, or working for or with a not-for-profit/charity that is making a difference. You could have done something in your life which really helped you move forward, and want to share this advice with others. You can be doing what you do anywhere in the world – in fact, having a global aspect to this project will make it even more useful.

Can you nominate one (or more) of your friends or peers who you think would be suitable for this project? You can also nominate yourself. Please don’t be bashful about stepping forward: this is all about empowering successive cohorts of MSJ girls, who can often feel overwhelmed by the life and career opportunities out there.

Each featured Old Girl will have a board dedicated to her, with a picture, and then details about what they do, and their best advice that they would like to hand on to current pupils. The boards will then be displayed in the corridors at school much like the photos attached.

We will probably do some sort of networking event, here in Malvern or in London, where Year 11 and Sixth Form are able to meet Old Girls involved in this project and get some one-to-one advice. Participation in this aspect is not a pre-requisite of being part of the project.

If you'd like to be involved, nominate someone or find out more please contact oga@malvernstjames.co.uk.
