Theresa May has the big task of forging a way forward for Britain as the new Prime Minister, following David Cameron's recent resignation.
Cameron stepped down after a referendum voted for the departure of the United Kingdown from the European Union, a decision that caused global panic in financial markets.
However, in the meantime, May has started announcing her appointees to various posts in the new government.
May is a University of Oxford graduate, who served as Home Secretary since May 2010. She held several positions in Parliament since entering the world of politics in 1986, which saw her ascending to become the first woman to lead the Conservative Party.
Prior to joining politics, she worked at The Bank of England and several posts at the Association for Payment Clearing Services.
