"Yara has a positive aura that radiates throughout her talk. She engages strongly with the youth when sharing her own life experiences, motivating youth in believing in themselves and assisting them in visualising the bigger picture. She works well at inspiring young people to develop themselves with their own individual life experiences"

"When Yara speaks to a group of young people they are attentive and listening as she makes what she has to say exciting, interesting and appropriate for her audience."
Chloe Pereira de Mello (Learning Support Assistant) Paray House
"Great presentation on the jungle by Yara. She told her story of how her young London life wasn't satisfying her so she made a change. Stripped of creature comforts Yara travelled the globe and sought after adventures we only read in books or see on TV, truly life changing experiences. Students were enthralled at her story and at the end many students stayed behind to ask questions. Yara is a fantastic role model!"
