Emily Davidson (née Little, 1986-1992, St Helen's/St Hilda's) left College in 1992 with an idea of a career 'in the City'. That didn’t grab her and other adventures soon beckoned. Since then, Emily has sailed one and a half times around the world, worked in the City again (briefly!) and become a secondary school teacher. She is now a coach working with individuals and teams from all walks of life, helping them to take those bolder steps. She lives in Winchester, has two sons and is looking forward to heading out onto the ocean again if her stars will align for a third time.

Emma Clark Lam (née Clark, 1985-1992, St Helen's/St Hilda's) left College in 1992, thinking she might do something artsy. After a career in journalism, she resigned from the BBC to freelance and look after her children. Based in Henley-on-Thames, she now keeps a literary-lifestyle blog, called An Author’s Notebook, and has written three novels, two of which are published on Amazon’s Kindle. In her spare time, she works for Care4Calais in Reading, looking after asylum seekers. She’s married with a daughter, a son, a black Lab and a cat who identifies as a dog.
