Susan Vickers 21st ‘Star’ in Ashmore Park Walk of Stars!

Councillor Phil Bateman MBE said, “Today I am welcoming Susan Vickers, as the 21st ‘Star’ in the Ashmore Park Walk of Stars.

Susan is well qualified to become a Member due to her early years living and being educated here in Ashmore Park. Those early years are encapsulated in her book .

Today Susan delivers inspirational work across the city.

I have known her for many years, and she captures the spirit of being a Walk of Stars member. Susan is a bundle of energy, she wants to improve our city. Already she has done much to inspire young people. Susan fits the role of being a role model and a person who has developed and made a career, from a very difficult start in life.

Take a look in what Susan Vickers is involved with. A good communicator and an accomplished broadcaster, model, entrepreneur, and community champion who has been supporting numerous local festivals, charities, and events.

Her daily broadcasts on international radio reach over 985k people, making her a powerful voice in the world. She uses this platform to discuss and raise awareness about issues that many of us face on a daily basis.

Her books, which have been over 30 years in the writing, is a testament to her resilience and determination.

With the recent cultural revolution, Susan finally feels that the world is a safer place to talk about her struggles with identity, and she is proud to share her story with others.

Councillor Phil Bateman added. “Young people today have many challenges, I hope they will be inspired and to lift their eyes and have faith and a confidence in their own abilities. That they will look forward and dream big about their future. My message to young people in Ashmore Park and Wednesfield is be Inspired, have confidence in yourself. Read and gain confidence by the way all these twenty one members of this Ashmore Park Walk of Stars have achieved a place in society, and are role players, across the huge prism of life.”

Susan’s experiences as an International broadcaster, a model, and a talented communicator have equipped her with a unique perspective that she uses to help others.

She speaks out against social injustices, shines a light on important causes, and supports various charities. Susan’s latest endeavour has been to launch her own Susan Vickers Foundation. Susan’s focus is aimed at the “incredible, adoptees, fostered and care experience people. Stating that the foundation is for you”.

Susan is a powerful force for good, and her work has made a significant impact in the lives of many.
