Phoenix FM’s Friday evening presenter Karin Ridgers presented a special programme last week celebrating some very talented young people from our community.
Karin spoke to teenage vegan activist Aiyana Goodfellow, who organises events and has spoken in front of thousands of people and to 10 year old vegan chef Omari McQueen who is the CEO of his company that makes delicious dips!
Karin also chatted to Billericay make-up artist Jessica Rhodes about how she set up her own business as a teenager.
To top it off the show also featured her son Callum who talks about school life and living with Type 1 diabetes.
Karin has been extremely busy as immediately after her show to Brighton to host this year’s Vegfest, one of the UK’s largest vegan festivals. Her interview can be heard again on phoenixfm.com.
Lots more guests coming up in the next seven days on air, including local author Tony Fosgate, Matt Everard from Billericay Volunteers, Caroline Seville from All Saints Church in Doddinghurst and model and fitness blogger Tyla Paton.
There will also be live music in the studio from The Arthur Clarke Collective and Brooke Telling.
