Reviews:

Alhamdulillah, the feedback that the Brave Learner’s team received from the participants was very encouraging. Since it was the first event, there was definitely room for improvement, but the team could agree that it was a brilliant first try.

“It was very organised and in fact much more inspiring than I was expecting! I genuinely felt renewed energy afterwards.”

“It was a great initiative, loved it! The give aways were so cute!”

“Event was well organised. Easily acceptable and non-formal type.”

“If this meet up could start later, I think more people could show up. I loved how kids had such good company to hang out with and learn from.”
