"Turn It Up Radio is an amazing project that allows you to express yourself in a unique way, it's a whole new kind of creativity"
"I love the Truth about Youth radio project because it gives me a platform to channel my talents, creativity and passions that I knew existed within me but had no outlet for before. When not using existing skills I'm learning and developing new ones. I'd recommend it to others who want to experience culture, fun, friendship and open doors for their future selves!"
"Its opened my eyes to the impact of radio and its benefits to the public... I have met great friends through the workshops as our interests are similar"
