Meet our Rise Heroes

Meet our Rise Heroes

Last week on Beat, we met our 5 Rise Heroes – girls aged between 12 and 16 who will take part in Rise, a special event at Carrickpherish library, Waterford. It takes place on International Day of the girl on October 11th.

We’ve heard about girls who are absolute legends – who are brave and caring, intelligent and attentive, who go above and beyond to rise to the occasion.

You can check out their interviews below.

This week, we're getting to know them a little better by setting them tasks throughout the week. Tune in to hear how they're getting on.
