Natassia, a student on our Aspiring Professionals Programme and Whitehall Residential Programme in 2014, says the following:

“Before I came on the programme, I was an individual who lacked confidence at times, but these past few weeks have been the best two weeks of my life. I will never forget being a part of something so incredible. The SMF has changed my life and if I had the opportunity to do it all over again, I would not hesitate. Thank you so much for making me feel like I belong.”
