Catalysts of Positive Change

The WRC Aftercare programme not only brought joy, it also underscored the importance of women’s development and leadership. From the experience sharing to the motivational sessions, therapy, rejuvenating spa treats and even the delightful aftercare gifts, it was a one-of-a-kind experience and I feel fortunate to have shared this memorable experience with other lovely women, thank you to WILAN for this impactful initiative.

Exceeded Expectations

The National Head Girl Conference was an amazing experience, I learnt so much and it helped me see the need for leaders and how even I, can become one from a young age. Now I feel like I have a community and role models I can look up to as I continue my leadership journey as a Head Girl and beyond.
