Alice Mulrooney, Musical Maestro

2013 - 2014


It sounds so dramatic but [Star Track] has changed my outlook on life. I just feel very lucky to have found Spark+Mettle.



Seyi Akiwowo, Educational Activist

2012 - 2013


[Through Star Track] I  learnt that it is okay to have aspirations. I felt that my aspirations were mocked through my time in formal education.



Suraj Rai, Changemaker

2011 - 2012


[Through Star Track, I have gained] a whole host of connections, opportunities and friends.


We are hugely grateful to the organisations who have helped us start realising our own aspirations.
