This system plays an essential role in creating schemas in the brain which make sense of the social world around us.

In many towns across the UK independent eateries, many varieties of restaurants from Vietnamese to Italian to English, as well as pop-up food stalls and Michelin starred establishments act as a focal point for the town’s economy and contribute to the cultural diversity of these towns and cities.

I think this is particularly prevalent when it comes to female pupils; they’re often encouraged to tick the boxes rather than break the mould.
