Last Monday, Head Girl Seyi and I attended the Lord Mayor’s Banquet at Guildhall as part of the group of students representing schools who have relations with the City of London Cooperation.
After watching the new and late Lord Mayor, the Prime Minister and leaders of other countries enter, we were invited to meet Theresa May. Nervously waiting in a line, and reminding ourselves not to ask about Brexit, she greeted us and welcomed us to the event before leading a conversation about our plans for next year.
Later in the evening, we had a delicious dinner and then joined the main dining area and listened to a speech by the new Lord Mayor about his aims for the coming year. Afterwards, Theresa May spoke about her foreign policy aims and what had changed since giving her speech the year before. Overall, the evening was very enjoyable and we feel very lucky to have been given the opportunity to go. However, the biggest surprise came the next day when Theresa May posted a picture of us meeting her on her Twitter account!
