"Beyond honoured and lost for words! There were so many fantastic women to be celebrated at this event! I am so proud and humbled to have won this award at the Great British Businesswomen of the Year Awards! I’ll continue to be passionate, champion social mobility, disrupt, and drive forward initiatives to give young people opportunities."
