Through The Diana Award’s Mentoring Programme, which connects pre-GCSE teenagers with Mentors from the world of work, Shomara planned and produced a social action project around the subject of racism and mental health. They named the project ‘Mission RAMH’. Together with the support of their mentors, the group led a celebration day to commemorate their school’s diverse cultures whilst also educating their school community on how racism can affect a person’s mental health and wellbeing.
The Mentoring Programme has helped Shomara learn how to be resilient and how to overcome challenges when things don’t quite go as planned. Shomara is inspired by Diana, Princess of Wales and the legacy she has left behind. She hopes to follow in Diana’s footsteps, never accepting the problems she sees around her and instead seeking to leave a lasting impact of her own for generations to come.
