Newstyle Radio take over_
somewhereto_ was given airtime on Newstyle Radio in West Midlands.
I can't believe I'm on radio speaking to 1000's of people. I'm so thankful to somewhereto_ for this experience of a lifetime.
Siraj - somewhereto_ young person.
what's your thing?
Siraj, Kyrah, Sykes, Hamza and Saschan were all looking for somewhereto_ showcase their variety of skills to a mass audience.
how did somewhereto_ help?
somewhereto_ was given airtime on Newstyle Radio 98.7FM. A whole two-hour show was dedicated to the project by presenter Dave Prince, with the young people given the opportunity to talk about their passions, perform rap, sing and even the chance to help produce the programme. The young people absolutely loved the experience. It was an excellent opportunity reaching out to over 100,000 listeners in 46 countries. During the show Dave was receiving emails from listeners as far as Germany. It was an excellent platform and somewhereto_ is in talks to do it again with another set of young people.
Siraj: "I so thank somewhereto_ for this experience of a lifetime... I've never done anything like this before!"
Kyrah: "It was an experience to see how its done behind the scenes... The producer/presenter says I can come back for further training - wow, a possible career change!"
Sykes: "The vibes in the studio was like party - another great space for me. I still can't believe how much success I've had with somewhereto_, its also cool to be a champion for somewhereto_ and support the other young people."
Hamza: "I was a bit nervous but with the support of the team it all went well, and I'm really glad I got to get my passion across."
Saschan: "I've only recently got in touch with somewhereto_ and already I'm on air talking about my project "the womb room", which is about young female fertility and gynaecological problems. I'm really passionate about this topic and I'm really grateful to somewhereto_ as despite its different from others' passions I'm still given the same opportunities."
