"Generation Rise has helped me to increase my confidence. I never used to speak openly in public, but I am now presenting my views confidently in class."
"Generation Rise has also helped me in setting my goals for the future and I am confident enough that I will achieve them."
"I can now let out my ideas with no fear or shyness."
- Henriette U.
"What amazes me is the way we learn in Her Voice Matters. It is very different from how we learn in normal classes here at school."
