Zainab was astonished that she won this Award and comment about the UNICEF programme: "It's been an instrumental journey throughout, with Di Layelle [Croydon College's Student Life Manager] being a great support. I am really proud of myself and family is too. People at the College made me fell special by giving me the top award."
