Changing Mindsets - Driving Progressive Education

Cultural Confidence Training For Educators

During my schooling years when the teacher called the class roll, my name was replaced with a number. “Its too hard to pronounce and 28 is easier” she said. 

I had been minimised to a number, which didn’t matter because she told me  “I would never amount to anything anyway”.

Many children and adults still face similar challenges like this everyday, often because educators, coaches and mentors don't know how to appropriately navigate cultural difference.

I help people forge out opportunities for themselves and others, whilst maintaining the strength and integrity of their cultural identity  - the foundation of which to  replace your old why, with your new focus
