As part of their Raised @ Rich Mix season, our CEO & Founder, Asma Shah was interviewed by the East London cultural venue which is one of our longtime collaborators. Asma discusses how You Make It grew from an idea that began at her kitchen table 9 years ago into an award-winning women's empowerment organisation, and why we're needed now more than ever: 

“The work we do at You Make It is about direct intervention in the lives of young women who’ve wrongly been overlooked because of issues around race and class, not just gender. Our work is all about making sure they’re able to feel the power and potential within themselves and are able to get to where they want to be in life."
