Yasmin Ibison

2018/19 Fellow

Yasmin graduated from the University of Birmingham with a First Class degree in Modern Languages. She specialised in Hispanic and Francophone politics, history, and literature. Having spent a year studying and working abroad in both France and Spain, she wants to focus on implementing positive social change in the UK.

During her time at university, Yasmin volunteered teaching English refugees. This experience cemented her belief that education is a vital tool for social empowerment — particularly for young people in ethnic minoriy communities. Excited to challenge herself to facilitate real change at a grassroots level, she hopes to learn how businesses can create innovative solutions that tackle inequality and include the voices of marginalised groups.
