Being female and from a BAME background, barriers have been part of Joanna's journey, however overcoming those barriers through entrepreneurial thought processes, strategy alignment and an understanding that youth violence is bigger than her personal circumstances, makes Joanna a true leader. She fuses positivity, culture, business savvy and purpose to empower young people, thereby redefining their outlook and ambition. Jo acts as role model for women and girls and shakes the societal status quo with integrity and power. From 2018 - 2019, Joanna has managed to grow the organisation by 188% and has already surpassed this growth in the 1st quarter of 2020. Joanna Vasanth

Not a lot of people that could make moves like her!
Jo is an outstanding leader and exemplary role model for other women and the young people she works with.
