Youngsters from Britain’s inner cities win trip to study at Harvard

9 June 2009 – Six British youngsters are to join some of the world’s most elite students at Harvard University in the USA. The group, aged between 18 and 25, have won an all expenses paid trip to study architecture following a series of workshops searching for Britain’s architects of the future.

The winners include Callum Gilbert, a victim of knife crime from Liverpool who left school with no qualifications but has a renewed determination to turn his life around, and shop assistant Oni Hinton from London – a star pupil who wanted to become an architect from a very young age but lost her way following severe family problems and illness.

Callum and Oni, along with the four other winners from around the UK, came together to meet Doreen Lawrence OBE, before they set off on their trip to Harvard.
