In the summer of 2020, the students from GIRLRISE were given the opportunity by TAKUMI to attend the AdTech festival Madfest. The students over the two days that the festival took place were given the task of preparing a brief for Natwest which would be presented on the second day. Each student overcame a challenge through the process, for some it was meeting the other young people, working as a group or public speaking.
A student who attended Madfest says “I went to Madfest with a lot of anxiety and didnt feel so confident. However the Digilearning team helped me to build my confidence and showed me the amazing side to digital marketing which I was unaware of beforehand”.
The workshops at GIRLRISE consist of topics from crypto to gaming, each session is a new chance to learn about something new and it’s done in a fun way. The speakers, who are professionals in their field, can use the time they have to teach the students about their work sector, or they may show them practical skills like creating your CV. There is no limit to what you will learn in the GIRLRISE programme.
