This opportunity has provided me with skills and knowledge that will greatly benefit me in the long run. It has motivated me to not only pursue my future career but also to commit and achieve whatever I put my mind to, and to do everything with a purpose. I am truly grateful to have been selected for this programme.


Emma, 18

I loved every second of it because it pushed me to think inwardly and also about the world around me and what needs changing. The energy that I have felt as well as the empowerment that has come from being a part of this amazing opportunity is overwhelming and inspiring. It is one of the best things I have done.
