Black Youth Awards Winner

Evidence Ativie

Award Won: Enterprise Award

The young entrepreneur has turned her passion for hairdressing into a flourishing business, Au-delà Votre Imagination (Beyond Your Imagination). Inspired by her mother, Evidence’s resilience has shone through even during challenging times like studying for her GCSEs.

“What sets Evidence apart is not just her business success but her social responsibility,” said Vaina.
“Beyond inspiring her peers to start their own businesses, Evidence offers free and discounted services, demonstrating kindness and consideration for those on a budget. Evidence is not just a young businesswoman but a true inspiration in the world of enterprise.”
