I’m reading an absolutely incredible book at the moment – Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. It’s a true story about a man who tries to climb K2, gets lost on the way down, and inadvertently ends up as head of an organisation building schools throughout Pakistan.

I think everyone should read this book, particularly children – like me – who hated school. Poring over the pages during my last night shift has made me realise just how lucky I was to have had a school to go to. And it’s made me realise just how much one person and a massive pile of determination can do to change the world.
