Talent 'Reflex' in The Gambia​​

Talent 'Reflex' in The Gambia​​

Kervarnie Tashay White is a 16 year old student from Friern Barnet School in London, who smashed it this January by delivering a Vessel UK leadership project in The Gambia. By his own admission he was really fearful of going anywhere in Africa, but his Mum was determined that he gained a real connection with the continent – and much needed inspiration – to help him deal with the challenges of being a young black man in London. In just 3 short weeks in The Gambia, he was able to volunteer at a 2 week environmental learning project in a secondary school, deliverer a short project on UK youth music to 18 youth and collaborate with young Gambian Rapper, Aladin, to create a song and accompanying music video from scratch!

‘I learned that I am talented and productive, I am a problem solver and I have perseverance. I have achieved by far the most I have ever achieved in such a short period in my life’
