Yusuf Islam, Mishal Husain, and the Rt. Hon. Sadiq Khan MP are three of the new Mosaic Ambassadors who were announced at a special event held to mark five years to the day that Mosaic was founded.
Our brand new Ambassadors will be high-profile advocates for Mosaic’s work, championing it publicly – as well as inspiring the many hundreds of young people who we support in schools and communities across the country.
BBC broadcaster Mishal Husain is a long-standing and active supporter of our work with young people, and is relishing the chance to become an official Ambassador: “I have long believed in the power of role models and it is heart-warming to see the vital work Mosaic is doing.” She adds: “I hope more young professionals across the country sign up as mentors and see Mosaic as a way to inspire others to follow in their footsteps.”
The Rt. Hon. Sadiq Khan MP said: “Mosaic’s efforts are making a significant impact in helping young people in deprived communities to make the most of their potential, contributing in a very real way to improving social mobility. I am proud to support Mosaic’s work.”
Jonathan Freeman, National Director of Mosaic, said: “We are overwhelmed to have the support of such prestigious ambassadors who share our passion to help improve the lives of thousands of young people across the UK and abroad.”
The other Ambassadors announced today are motivational speaker Pinky Lilani OBE, leading businessman Rumi Verjee CBE, Rear-Admiral Amjad Hussain CB, inspirational business leader and philanthropist Lord Noon, and BBC London newsreader Asad Ahmad.
