Alumni Spotlight: Pollyanna races ahead at Envision (Formula E)



5 Minute Interview with Alumni, Pollyanna, Class of 2019

A Levels: Geography, Psychology, RE

Degree: BSc Geography at Durham University

Job: Envision Racing (Formula E) – Sustainability Coordinator and Event Assistant

Pathway: My previous experience involved work in luxury retail, high-end hospitality, part time sports coaching and teaching, not the typical path into motorsport! However, communication, organisation and teamwork skills that I learnt from these jobs have been so important in my current role where I am responsible for team logistics and sustainability projects, such as carbon offsetting and our activation at COP28.

Word from the Wise: Push yourself out of your comfort zone and don’t be afraid to try something a bit different; approach new challenges with an open mind and be adaptable with your skillset. Keep in touch with your GHS friends, they are such special friendships that have seen you through the highs and lows of school and are irreplaceable.
