Shinnel Paras is an innovative educational practitioner who by leaving the stability and comfort of her full-time job as Head of Sixth Form is pursuing her life passion of motivating and inspiring young people from the most disadvantaged communities in London.
Together with Shannel Bernard, co-founding Elevate, they are challenging the status quo and challenging the unconscious bias that, for some reason, is still embedded into our education system.
Elevate’s exceptional programme consists of four pillars: professional-ready, well-being, leadership and enterprise. These pillars will enable students to more equipped and more able to deal with the challenges they face in life.
“I have to uplift the students because at the end of the day, they're our future. Kids are the most innocent beings on the planet so we need to give them everything, all the opportunities possible.”
ABOUT SHINNEL PARAS
To fulfil this mission of motivating and inspiring young people, Shinnel started a new role as Education Programme Manager for a Premier League football club **cue the football fans** to broaden her reach and impact. As a result of seeing first-hand, how the education system is failing to prepare our most vulnerable students, Shinnel co-founded 'Elevate' - an idea that was born in her sleep! Elevate is a company working tirelessly to equip and upskill the most disadvantaged students with the necessary characteristics, behaviours and traits that will see them succeed in all walks of life.
