Jessica Omari and Hannah Gray. Mentor, mentee, mums-to-be

Mentor and mentee pair Jessica Omari and Hannah Gray have great news to celebrate!

Last month we reported that John Schofield Trust mentee Hannah had made her presenter debut on BBC Look North (Yorkshire) on BBC One while 26 weeks’ pregnant. She presented her first programme on Sunday 7 February and plans more presenting shifts in the spring until the baby is due to be born in May.

At the time Hannah thanked her JST mentor Jessica Omari for her support.

But the two have more in common than just the JST.

On 24 February Jessica tweeted:


Tweet from Jessica Omari saying 'pregnant mentee, pregnant mentor, @JSchofieldTrust did pick a pair didn't they @HannahGrayBBC #thisgirlcan with two pregnant woman emojis


Jessica says, ‘it feels pretty amazing that we are both progressing our careers, playing a part in the JST scheme which I love being a mentor on and also pregnant, which means our chats oscillate between presenting, to work life balance and baby books!’
