Jessye Durant

My name is Jessye and I’m currently an A Level student at Beal High School. I enjoy doing lots of activities in my spare time, such as reading and going for walks around the park. I also play a few musical instruments, and one day, (after I have gone to university) I hope to become a music teacher! The BeFAB scheme is very important to me because not only can I learn new skills in public speaking etc. but I also get to share my faith with you!

Presentation Title:

‘The basics of my faith: Christianity’

Availability:

Wednesday and Thursday 14:15 onwards

Ria Vishwanath

I studied at Beal High School from year 7 to 11. I am currently studying Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Economics at AS level in London Academy of Excellence. The main reason behind choosing these subjects is that they open a range of fields of work that I have been interested in since I was approaching adolescence. Growing up as a Hindu person in England I wasn’t exposed to my religion as much as I would have liked so understanding the reasons behind simple things, such as praying and chanting mantras were confusing for me. This was, amongst many, one of the reasons why I decided to join BeFAB. My KS2 presentation is about praying, how some Hindus pray and where they can pray. The KS3 presentation also includes basic information about meditation and chakras. Both presentations evoke discussion and deep thought. I believe that sharing beliefs and knowledge about Hinduism in more depth than we generally would in school would make us all feel more connected and closer.
I have one older sister who is in University now.
In my spare time-which is scarce, I read, practice yoga, sleep and relax.

Presentation Title:

The World of Hinduism — an insight into worship
