Being a member of the Generating Genius family has enabled me to access so many amazing opportunities and I can’t believe how much I’ve developed since I joined.

Emily Emiru - Uni Genius Student

During my time at Generating Genius I have been challenged on many occasions, in the form of work experiences and meeting expectations, which helped me to gain confidence and a better sense of direction in life. The team at GG have always pushed us to be better version of ourselves and without GG I cant say I would have grown into the person I am today.
