UpRising is very important for young people 'finding their way'.

I am originally from Sheffield and studied Law at Aston University, Birmingham. After finishing Law School, I was searching for my first graduate job, but have always been interested in developing my soft skills and extracurricular activities. The UpRising Leadership Programme was recommended to me by a friend and it was an amazing experience. Due to UpRising, my confidence increased and I learnt how to further my leadership skills, business acumen and how to make a positive social impact. UpRising is very important for young people "finding their way." I have made some amazing, like-minded friends and seized a number of subsequent opportunities from the UpRising scheme.
