St Peter's students join Prospect 100 project

Two St Peter's students have joined Prospect 100, a youth movement project that aims to give talented and motivated young people opportunities to create the future by putting them in touch with global companies.

Darcy Dixon and Dillon Somia have joined Prospect 100, which is run by Future Labs, as Head of People and Head of Partnerships, respectively, working together as part of the project's Youth Panel.

Darcy is a first-year PPE student at St Peter's and a Choral Scholar at Keble College. She is passionate about access and diversity, and is the Oxford African Caribbean Society's Junior Outreach and Access Officer. She is also currently Vice-President and a founding member of the Black Heads Students' Network, a collaboration of black heads of school across the UK which gives young people a platform and encourages them to be leaders.

Dillon is also a first year PPE student. He is currently Logistics Officer at the Oxford Union, in which role he helps secure various speakers across a diverse range of fields, and also sits on the committee of the University's Venture Capital Network, using his position to advocate for investors to seek out industry changing start-ups that have positive social and environmental impacts.
