“It’s always an honour to work with and for our community. This has been especially exciting with the Our Voices project as we got to work with the amazing young people who have inspired our beautiful new episodes. They have given me a real sense of hope. “Our Voices” is all about creating unity and power in our collective voice. The young people of North Kensington are incredible.”
