We are London
By Giulia Amparo Bruni Roccia
On Tuesday the 12th of November, the Director of Grassroot Diplomat Talyn Rahman-Figueroa had the honour and pleasure to be invited by Envision UK to speak at the "We Are London" event in Westminster.
She addressed students who had come from over 40 schools of London, to participate in activities, workshops and discussions, to share their knowledge about what they can accomplish in their societies with their skills. Very bright young people with a lot of potential attended the event, people who are hoping to start up their own businesses in the future.
Talyn shared her story about how she came to found Grassroot Diplomat, gave tips about the route one should take towards founding one’s own business, and urged the students to build connections, believe in their cause, and believe in themselves. “Dream big; aim high” as she emphasised.
