Why do you want to be part of Agency?
I remain inspired by Maxine Sloss’ determination to replicate the success of Dave Eggers US project, 826 National. The idea of harnessing the creative input of the community to enhance the output of the next generation of kids is truly wonderful.

At school I was always torn between studying hard and rebelling hard. I suspect that it was simply a reluctance to let my siblings do better than me that spurred me on to let studying win out!
What one book would you take to a desert island and why?
