After being bullied as a teenager, Nathalie decided she wanted no child to feel alone in dealing with a problem at home or school. She set up her social enterprise, EduKit, in 2014 and since then has enabled thousands of students to seek help and improve their mental health through EduKit’s online student wellbeing surveys and more recently a mobile app for students developed with schools during the first lockdown.
The Edukit app allows teenagers to report concerns about their mental health directly to their school and access immediate guides and tools to address any issue they may be facing.
The app regularly surveys thousands of students, with over 100,000 students having taken an EduKit wellbeing survey to date. This gives Nathalie a rare insight into the teenage mind at any given moment so she is a valuable addition to debates, panels and interviews relating to current news items where a youth perspective is required.
Nathalie is an experienced interviewee and speaker. She chaired the London Knife Crime Conference organised by London Mayor Sadiq Khan, sits on the Board of Virgin Unite and has mentored children and young people with ‘100 Black Men of London’ and ‘Young Enterprise.’ She was also an amateur stand-up comedian for a time so is confident on any stage.
