I am the Driver in My Life

"I left feeling empowered. I will take action to be more resilient in the workplace and take ownership to recognise that I am the driver in my life. I am the youngest in my team so sometimes I feel like I am a fraud and shouldn't be there, however I left the Rising Festival feeling like yes I do deserve to be there and it's an achievement. So thank you for helping me recognise my achievements and to believe in myself." - Daleep, Festival attendee
