By Richard Adepoju (Head Boy, Class of 2013)

Former Villiers School Head Boy, Richard Adepoju (Class of 2013) wrote for ‘Dentistry‘ about his experiences, and what he would like to see happen…

“What am I proud to be? I’m proud to be more than just another statistic, I’m proud to have proven that your skin colour does not define or predetermine how your life will turn out, I’m proud to have achieved everything I have done so far. But most importantly I’m proud to be me, Richard Adepoju, a 26-year-old Nigerian-born, Irish-raised black man, striving to succeed, determined to be the best, resilient to the point where no obstacle is too much to overcome.”
