She’s used her award to take courses on project proposal writing, and monitoring and evaluation.

Frances wants to help international development organisations plan their campaigns and activities.

She said: “I’ve been working as an editor for quite some time, but wanted to broaden my knowledge. I was advised to branch out into different areas and Guinness was very helpful. The team encouraged me to hone my ideas, firm them up and find the best provider to get my training.

“Their Aspire Awards give you the push you need to get where you want to be and say ‘You can do it’. I’m definitely feeling good about the future.”
