“Khadija has delivered a variety of sessions to both large and small groups of 14-18 year olds over the last year. Her presentation was exactly what I asked for in terms of engaging young people, inspiring them to achieve more and motivating them to work harder, all coupled with a business/entrepreneurial message. Khadija is a remarkable young woman with a fantastic ability to engage with young people. I would recommend her unreservedly.” – Dennis, Ormiston Bushfield Academy
