Stephanie inspires students

It has been an exciting week for one of our Patrons Stephanie Hirst as she received an Honorary Doctorate from Leeds Beckett University for her contribution to public life.

Radio star Stephanie has a successful media career but has very much become an icon for the transgender community after being so open and honest about her experiences.

Leeds Beckett University Chancellor, Sir Bob Murray CBE, said: “Stephanie is an inspiration and demonstrates values we can all aspire to, such as integrity and authenticity.

“I am delighted that Leeds Beckett University has recognised Stephanie’s contribution to public life with this Honorary Doctorate. I believe her courage, experience and all that she has achieved will be of great inspiration to our graduating students.”
