There was always diversity and about equality and chose well that they are another words for exploration. As a welcome asian immigrant in the earliest 1970's, my career was told to me by my teachers. They had told my parents that I would work in the labs. I was not agreeable with the decision, but in 1980's when I reached adult age that was the only job I was a natural at and my first job was a lab technician job in the council.
I went to a comprehensive school with students from a diverse commuinty from Polish to Asians to Africans etc. Most of the students were native Europeans and their life was mapped by them, parents and teachers etc. Since the immigrant population was 3% and the Native British 97%., it was well presented and to a point in my life satisfactory.
