Education & Leadership Facilitators
Revolution Hive creates spaces for young people to be self-reflective, develop critical analysis skills, and be inspired. We create change agents and excellent civic leaders. The continued development of the world is in the work of Revolution Hive.
It is important that we equip young people with life skills and tools to process information so they can make their own informed opinions on how they feel about it. This will also prepare them for the future and empower them to be the change we need them to be.
We are experiencing rapid changes in the world requiring different skills, knowledge and abilities. This needs to be reflected in the learning environments that young people are within so that they can best prepare. Personally, I am excited to be able to cover essential topics that I wish I had learnt sooner!
Knowledge alone is no longer enough. There are several life skills e.g. networking, team work and communication, that are vital to excel in the ‘real world’ post education. Sometimes students are academically advanced but lack the life skills necessary to reach their full potential. Simple workshops enhancing these skills can improve the students career prospectus vastly.
The work we do at Revolution Hive is imperative since it equips the next generation with life-long learning tools, preparing them for the challenges of tomorrow. As an avid advocate of human welfare I firmly believe that there is an education that schools do not teach, and this is where the work of RevHive begins.
As a passionate educator, I love knowledge and learning and I thrive on collaborating and engaging with young people. Having lived and worked overseas for the last 8 years I am an outspoken advocate of global issues and intercultural learning and am keen to be part of a team that empowers and upskills the future!
In a world where we are slowly becoming more and more disconnected with ourselves and the world around us I think the work of Revolution Hive is critical. It promotes a community of impassioned, engaged individuals who believe in the power of their infinite potential.
I have supported young people in building their skills nationally as I have been an ambassador for the Barclays LifeSkills Programme since 2014, and the Deputy Chair of the LifeSkills Youth Advisory Council alongside Karen Brady since 2016. Also, I am a youth advisor to the iWill Campaign, and sit on the business pioneer group.
I believe that the youth of today are the key to creating much needed social change and they have the power to tear apart systems that are defunct in the contemporary world in order to replace them with fairer systems and institutions. From my experience in working with young people in schools as a politics mentor to BME students, I have felt disappointed in the way that the curriculum doesn’t educate young people about the real world and what it means to be leaders rather it constrains them to institutions that are outdated.
I’m a professional life coach and previously an Assistant Programme Manager for The Challenge.
