UpRising was such a huge turning point in helping me to believe in myself and finding the right people to support me.

Before I started UpRising, I had just graduated from university and had no idea what I wanted to do next. Surrounding myself with so many like-minded people on the programme helped me to build my confidence and ‘find my space’ in society. I now work in the charity sector, supporting young people both academically and pastorally. Additionally I have co- founded my own community project, creating a platform for South Asian women in the UK. UpRising was such a huge turning point in helping me to believe in myself and finding the right people to support me.
