REflect 2023 - RS Grassroots

REflect2023 was honoured to be part of the RSGrassroots family celebrating

As a keynote speaker it was important for me to share my life story so far to the youth in attendance, not an area I tend to share openly however if it’s means being relatable role model with similar experience it can be used as powerful tool showcasing what is achievable. With REflect having the simple aim of inspiring hundreds young people from diverse ethnic backgrounds into STEM.

From inspirational REAL models learning about career journeys, the barriers we’ve had to overcome and amazing projects we’re working on now such myself with the Driven By Us Team

Special thanks to the whole RS Grassroots Team for the opportunity, Isabella Mascarenhas, Amy Muncer  Sophie Jeffrey, Wayne (Jono) Hutt FLPI, Elvis Tinago EngTech ARAeS, Kudzai Manduvi
