Poet Charlotte wows audience of 100 with her story

Young women presenting to a crowd

Charlotte, 19, from Wigan went from sitting at home alone to performing in front of an audience of 100.

As a result of her Greater Manchester Talent Match journey with Reform Radio, Charlotte took part in a residential poetry course with Arvon. Having always struggled with public speaking, the course left her with whole lot of confidence.

With this new found confidence, Charlotte volunteered to share her Talent Match story at the Big Conversation, a yearly event that brings together employers and young people to discuss youth unemployment.

She wrote and performed a poem about her experience, which you can listen to here:
