Read, Reflect, Relate and Realise

Welcome to my website which celebrates leaders and world travellers alike. As I begin to plan for my twilight years after a 32-year career in education across all phases and three continents, join me as I strive to make connections with as many people from as many backgrounds as possible.


Paula Marie Fidler was born on the 15th April in the1960s and because of the context of her birth; colour of her skin; white and Jamaican heritage; the period in which she was born, and the fact that her mother was a young unmarried teenager without the total support of her family to keep Paula, like thousands of others born in the UK during much of the 20th century without white skin, this shame and embarrasment licenced Paula to be admitted into the social care system and be ripped from her birth family and everything that was held for her in that space. That’s what society taught her and that’s what she believes to be true.
