PENNY Mordaunt has spoken to schoolgirls about the jobs she had on the way to becoming an MP.

The MP for Portsmouth North visited Portsmouth High School and spoke in an assembly about how she had worked in hostels in Romania, as a secretary, and for John Major, William Hague and on George W Bush’s first presidential campaign.

She advised the girls not to worry if they too didn’t know what they wanted to do when they grew up. Year seven pupil Evie Chandler, 11, from Havant, said: ‘She was really inspirational and helped us to look in to the future in terms of going for what you want, being confident and not to give up. She told us to live our dreams.’

Lily Godkin, 12, Southsea, added: ‘Penny Mordaunt inspired me by telling us that if we work hard and stay focused that we can achieve anything that we want.’
