Posted: 20th July 2021 - 3:15pm

An enterprising Loughborough College graduate has joined the board of a national charity.

Mina Karshala, a BA (Hons) Leadership and Management alumnus, has been appointed to the board of trustees of Young Enterprise.

Announcing the news on Linkedin, Mina said: “I took part in Young Enterprise whilst studying at Loughborough College eight years ago. The experience made such a big difference to me, it grew my skillset and gave me the confidence to always give something a good go! If it doesn't work, it's ok, you learnt something there and a part of you has grown through it, ready for the next time.

“More than that, it opened up a whole new way of thinking, an enterprising mindset and a whole world of opportunities, which normally might be easy to skate past without noticing.”

Young Enterprise is the national charity of enterprise education which gives young people the skills, knowledge & confidence they need to succeed in the changing world of work.

As a member of the board of trustees Mina will work with the charity’s CEO and staff to help develop more than a million opportunities for young people to develop their skills.

Chris Cockerton, Loughborough College’s Dean of Higher Education, said: “My congratulations to Mina on this appointment which will ensure her enterprising spirit and talent can benefit more young people.

“The College team is always proud to see our graduates succeed and inspire other young people to follow their dreams.”
