I have always wanted to be a mathematician from as far back as I can remember, and I’m pleased to be pursuing my dreams. I am currently studying for a BSc in Mathematics at University of Greenwich. I am also a maths tutor, and I draw and paint. I am also a CMS Champion at my university. I like the concept of Rosebud as it gives females empowerment, both young and old the courage to stand up for what they believe in, to be different and to be the difference in the world today. I believe that being positive in life goes a long way.
Cezanne is a Visual and Spoken Word Artist and Author of various Self-help books such as ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger’. Rosebud became aware of Cezanne through her painting, which captivated us because of its depiction of a young woman blossoming out of a rosebud. Rosebud was pleased to discover more about the artist behind the painting and was excited to find out about her passion for working with young women and her commitment to helping raise them to become queens.
Destiny is a campaigner for children with allergies to be recognised in schools and given much needed support. Destiny is fighting for provision of a statutory responsibility for education providers to be trained and responsible for providing medication to allergy sufferers, particularly if they go into shock. With the help of her mother Paula, she has taken this campaign to the Houses of Parliament, where it was noted and presented with the most inspirational campaign prize. Destiny is actively working for a change in the law and has written to the Prime Minister and the Department of Education.
Lizzie values every opportunity to share knowledge and skills to help others reach their full potential. She believes all young girls/ladies should have a nourishing environment in which to develop their character to confidently walk into a happy and successful young adulthood and beyond. She was drawn to Rosebud for the support and empowerment they provide to young ladies through an excellent range of fun and meaningful workshops and evening clubs where they assist them to learn, grow and thrive.
Naomi is a professional Careers Consultant with over ten years’ experience in the field. Naomi is passionate about supporting young girls who are trying to figure out who they want to be. “I like that Rosebud is catered to women from different backgrounds, and empowers women to be the best in their lives and reach their fullest potential. I feel the experience, skills and knowledge I have gained from my educational, employment and personal background would prove beneficial to young women who are trying to overcome barriers and gain a clear direction with their lives.”
I think it is really important for young people to have good role models as they move into adulthood. I work in a girls’ school and I enjoy interacting with the students. I think that it can be very difficult for young women nowadays with the pressures of social media and the common assumption that we all need to be ‘perfect’. I would like to help make a difference in a young person’s life. I want to show young women that we don’t need to be perfect, we just need to be the best we can be.
