A big thank you to all of those people who have supported me by sharing their knowledge and wisdom over the last 15 years. As I have always said ‘when you surround yourself with passionate people there are no bonds to what you can achieve’.
Looking forward to the next 15 years….
These are just a few of the highlights of a great year, which saw me once again surrounded by great, passionate, inspirational people who are mostly unaware of the influence and impact that they have on many

As an Ambassador for The Hunger Project I have a self-imposed responsibility to practice what I preach. Hence this 100km Challenge. The Hunger Project is a global, non-profit, strategic organisation committed to the sustainable end of world hunger. Our work in 18,000 villages across 12 countries of South Asia, sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America, reaches the lives of almost 20 million people, primarily through 385,000 trained volunteer leaders.
Many thanks in advance and wish me luck!

The event was also an opportunity to promote the numerous initiatives that are being introduced into the Yemeni communities to help address some of the challenges faced by a community that was one of the first to settle in the UK over 150 years ago, yet have struggled to progress at the same rate of other minority groups. Initiatives such as champion, role model and mentorship programmes, capitalising on the many Yemeni Professionals who have succeeded despite the adversity that has plagued this community for decades and who want to give something back to help raise aspirations and make a difference to those less fortunate than themselves.
There were over 120 Yemenis at the event, which was made up of Yemeni youth, community leaders, parents, role models, mentors, champions, the Yemeni Ambassador and the Rt Hon. Keith Vaz who presented the outstanding achievement awards, which went to Yemeni Youth who had achieved above and beyond expectations.
The role models talked about how they got to where they are now, the challenges that they experienced along the way and how they overcame those challenges. It was truly inspiring to hear from so many Yemenis who wanted to give something back and to see Yemeni from across the UK who came along to be part of such a historic event.
The next steps are to arrange for the champions, role models and mentors to work with Yemeni youth, the different Yemeni communities associations, schools and parents to help raise the attainment levels and help Yemeni youth reach their full potential
