A MESSAGE FROM KHAFI
"I believe young people are amazing and it breaks my heart to see how often young people short change themselves by conceding defeat when it comes to their goals and aspirations before they have even attempted them! I truly believe every single young person has something special to share with the world and I am on a constant mission to dig it out"
“They were all simply amazing! The staff that were there and students loved it. We will definitely be getting them to come again. They were so good that the year 11s actually thanked me for organising them coming in, it really cheered the girls up especially after a few weeks of mock exams! They did a brilliant job!” – Shabana Delawala - Sion-Manning Girls School
“Dear Fix Up Team,
I would like to take this time out to thank Christina and Khafi for the inspirational assembly they delivered to our year 11 students today. The girls were truly inspired and I feel it was pitched perfectly for this group. We would like to book Christina and Khafi for a year 9 assembly and I will be contacting you in the new term to organize a suitable time for this to happen. Please send them my personal thanks!”
