Work Like A Dynamo

Zeynab Ahmed has enlisted the support of TV magician Dynamo to help encourage young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to find their own talents. 

 

The Fixer from Bradford is concerned that many young people struggle to find a career, and believes that opportunities are available to anybody regardless of their academic past.

 

‘Young people need to believe in themselves no matter what sort of background they come from,’ explains Zeynab.

 

‘They might think that they have no future but there are so many options for them. If they have a skill, it should be nurtured from a young age.

 

'They can then attend college or university, pursue an apprenticeship or even start a business.

 

‘It’s important because they need to stand on their own two feet, look after their family and help the economy.'

 

 

 

 

 

With Fixers, Zeynab collaborated with Dynamo for a filmed message after she successfully encouraged his team to help her inspire others.

 

The film shows a little bit of his signature magic, while he encourages young people to believe in their own abilities ... like him.

 

You can watch Zeynab's Fixers film "Believe and You Will Achieve || Dynamo" at the top of this page.

 

‘Dynamo appeals to everybody because he is an example of someone who has done well for himself.

 

‘He has come from a similar background but he has worked hard. He is a fantastic role model for young people.’

 

Zeynab wants to see her film shared and viewed on social media.

 

‘Young people need to look at their strengths and put themselves out there. They need to believe in themselves.’
