This is where I found my voice

"I've been doing a lot of public speaking, especially engaging women into activities and events. These are the kind of skills that I actually need as part of my course. I think I always knew I had that in me, but I've grown a lot in Bradford, and it's just by picking up these different opportunities that come your way."
