"It was a pleasure to have you speak to our group. The feedback I have received from the group has been overwhelmingly positive. Several commented on how nice it was to have a young leader come in and speak to them and in a friendly, encouraging and non patronising manner. I would say your unique selling point is your life story, your infectious enthusiasm, amazing self belief and belief that all young people have the ability to be leaders. I found your presentation engaging and the use of Powerpoint most innovative. The use of image and music were powerful ways to impart your message. The greatest value add for our group would be the complimentary membership to the yGen club.

Listening to Alicia passionately open our event and being able to slip in and observe some of her workshops later in the programme, it was clear why she is held in such high regard when it comes to engaging and facilitating workshops with young people. The students were geniunely inspired by her personal achievements and yet at the same time related easily and comfortably with her. Her experiences and achievements at such a young age, combined with her ability to engage young people and her natural passion for 'inspiring', make an irrestible combination".
