Meghan, Senior Programmes Delivery Officer

How long have you been in your role?

I’ve worked for UpRising since 2019 and I’m based in Cardiff.

Why do you love working with young people?

There have been so many influential people in my life who have really helped me on my journey, and I want to be able to give some of that back! I am driven by my curiosity and desire to learn, and I am always learning something new from working with young people!

What advice do you have for young people?

Pursue your passions, don’t give up and enjoy every experience in the moment because you never know where it might lead!

A fun fact about me is…

I have recently got a new dog - the cutest puppy called Arthur!

 

Beth, Senior Programmes Delivery Officer

How long have you been in your role?

I’ve been with UpRising for three and a half years, and I’m based in Birmingham.

Why do you love working with young people?

I’m passionate about working with young people as they have so much potential but also a lot of pressure on their shoulders! I love being able to support them in preparing for their future and improving their confidence. I believe every young person should be given support to help them achieve their goals, and that’s what Stand Out does!

What advice do you have for young people?

Have faith! We all have knock backs but everything has a funny way of working its way out. Stay proactive and follow your goals!

A fun fact about me is…

I have a cat with actual thumbs!

 

Nisani, Programmes Delivery Officer

How long have you been in your role?

I joined UpRising in March 2021 and I’m from London.

Why do you love working with young people?

I love the energy and enthusiasm young people bring. I feel that as a group they are often misunderstood and don't always have the platform to display their abilities. But when they are provided with that platform, like UpRising, they thrive and I love to see it!

What advice do you have for young people?

You are not expected to have it all figured out and you probably never will, in fact rarely anyone does. Just go along with the flow and enjoy the process - you’ll be alright!

A fun fact about me is…

If I had to live off one food for the rest of my life, it would definitely be potatoes!

 

Caitlin, Programmes Delivery Officer

How long have you been in your role?

I joined UpRising in March 2021 and I’m from West Yorkshire.

Why do you love working with young people?

I’m constantly inspired when working with young people. I love hearing their brilliant ideas during sessions, and seeing a young person’s confidence grow throughout the programme is amazing! I’m so excited to work with all the participants on Stand Out!

What advice do you have for young people?

It’s okay to take a step back and think about what you want to do, even if everyone around you seems to have it worked out. Remember, everyone has their own pace!

A fun fact about me is…

I am the biggest fan of tea - although it has to be Yorkshire tea! I drink far too many cups a day...
