Youth Partnership

Hema Asodia

Youth Partnership member

My name is Hema and I’m so excited to be a member of The Talent Tap’s brand-new Youth Partnership. I’ve just finished studying for a Certificate of Higher Education as part of the University of Cambridge’s Foundation Year in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.

Since joining The Talent Tap in 2020, I’ve been given the opportunity to participate in a virtual summer work experience placement, as well as an in-person summer residential too. This summer (alongside working at my placement) I’m looking forward to getting to know you properly- so if you see me around, please come and say hi, because I’d love to chat to you!

Sidenote: Just thought I’d give you all a heads up; my twin-sister is also a part of The Talent Tap. If you end up introducing yourself to her, thinking she’s me, I promise not to hold it against you! If it makes you feel any better, The Talent Tap staff are also just as confused half of the time. (In fact, until very recently, they’d accidentally put her up on this part of the website by mistake!)

Gemma Brien

Youth partnership member

Hi! My name is Gemma, and I am currently studying Law at DeMontfort University. This will be my third summer with The Talent Tap and I am really looking forward to seeing everyone! I will be in ‘Session A’ with both Mabel and Bailey. We are all very friendly, so feel free to come over and say hi! For anybody feeling nervous, don’t be, ask anyone. 

On my first in-person placement I was a nervous wreck, but everyone is so lovely and will do everything they can to make you feel comfortable. 

Hobbies… I’m a law student, I don’t have free time, and any time I get is best used for a nap… or a glass of wine!
