Trust your intuition and success will follow
Entrepreneur, 5 Star rated podcast, mum and motivational speaker
After completing her degree in Broadcast Media Technologies, Esta realised there was a massive lack of job opportunities for women, even more so for women of colour in Leeds, UK.
After endless trips to London, attending workshops and events, it became apparent that The North of England, especially Leeds is underrated and easily forgotten about when it comes to talented and skilful people.
Esta decided to create Female Magik as a platform that firstly celebrates women from the North to inspire other young women in and around Leeds to stay in their hometown and create something special for themselves.
Furthermore, Esta grew up in an area that has only ever had negative stigma attached to it. Going to a basically all white high school proved that your background always sticks with you and you can easily become another statistic instead of being seen as a human being. Esta was predicted to fail nearly all her GCSE's and fast forward to jobs - she was often subjected to being made fun of because of her background and home area.
This can put anyone down and make you feel worthless especially if you believe what is said about you.
However Esta has used these negative experiences as fuel to form a much better mindset, higher level of confidence and now projects this onto others.
Female Magik has had a variety of women on the podcast, sharing their stories. We have also had a number of events each with different motivational focus points.
