"'Uju Asika’s talk was an inspiration to all students. Especially in the world we live in today, it is vital that we are antiracist and she spoke so passionately about the importance of teaching children to be antiracist from a young age. She told us all about her upbringing and her own personal encounters with racism which made us all more aware of how a person who is discriminated against because of their skin colour can feel, making us as a school community more motivated to make change. She concluded with her message of hope in young people and how she believes that young people will continue fighting for action and change concerning racial justice which motivated us to do so in our school community. It is clear to see that her passion and enthusiasm for teaching young people about race definitely had a positive impact on our school community" - Pirasha, Lower Sixth Student, King's High School 

"Uju gave two talks at Warwick School, both entitled “Bringing Up Race”. The first was to all of the pupils in the senior school and the second was to parents. Both talks were outstanding. They were pitched at the level of their respective audiences and very clearly our pupils engaged with the content. The talks have enabled us as a school to open up conversations around race, equality, inclusion and unconscious bias. Some parents have also messaged to say that their sons have started conversations at the dinner table as a result of hearing Uju’s talk" - Richard, Deputy Head of Pastoral, Warwick School 

"Thank you for an incredibly thoughtful and wonderful discussion today. This was SO helpful and I hope extra thought provoking for some of our colleagues. We appreciate your patience and grace. We reached 100 folks today and will share with even more via the audio recording. I’ve already received multiple requests. We appreciate you helping us all to continue to educate ourselves and continue to journey towards a better world. Thank you again. You are truly, wonderfully out of this world!!" - Susan, Chair of the Employee Parenting Network
