"I have found Sarah Banham to be a fantastic mentor. She helped in many ways! Being able to gain confidence is amazing and being on the radio as a co-host helped me a lot. Also learning the journalism side [of writing] at work experience gave me a chance to find out what I love and it opened a door to my future! I would suggest Sarah as a mentor to many people since she can teach you a great deal of information needed!"
SY, Student, Essex - Regarding Coaching and Mentoring

"It was great fun. I enjoyed seeing how a radio show worked and talking
about my story. I might write a play for the radio."
