Ramadan Gains: Saeed Atcha

Ramadan has flown by in the blink of an eye and we’re sad to say we’re coming to the end of our Ramadan Shoutout series.

For our final week we’re featuring Saeed Atcha. A young man of many talents, to simply say Saaed is accomplished is an understatement.

Tired of the misrepresentation of young people, Saeed launched his own youth-led magazine and website, Xplode. He set up the magazine to change the narrative about young people, by letting them lead it. Both the magazine and website help young people increase their employability prospects by training them in media, business and life skills.

Saeed is all about giving young people the best chance in life no matter their efforts and we think that’s pretty dope. Alongside Xplode, he relaunched the Social Mobility Commission initiative that does exactly that. Saeed was appointed as one of the Secretary of Education’s Social Mobility Commissioners to help see it through and that speaks volumes. Who better to make change than those pushing for it?

Actions really do speak louder than words, because Saeed’s commitment to supporting young people into employment and supporting social action has positively impacted many. His work supports countless young people by offering volunteering services and development programs.

Saeed’s passion working with young people is driven by his own experiences being at risk of expulsion from school. He turned his life around after founding Xplode, determined to promote a positive image of young people.

He strongly feels that young people have been ready to take on an active part in improving their communities and Saeed is showing the world that this couldn’t be truer.

Saeed’s efforts have certainly not gone unnoticed; he was awarded an MBE by the Queen on behalf of Prince William himself. And as if that wasn’t impressive enough, he is the youngest person to be recognised by the Queen in the 2019 New Year’s Honours List!

Saeed’s efforts with young people in the community go above and beyond expectations, and really show that anyone can be the change they wish to see in the world.

You can find Saeed on Twitter or Instagram to keep up date with all his latest work.
