With a clear focus on supporting this philosophy, The British Fellowship is proud to support M.Division in the re-launch of the Official Fame Team Australia and we look forward to working closely with the team in the future.”

As part of the re-launch Leesa Smith, (Beehive Creative & AHC Youth Worx Mentor) has been engaged as the official FAME Team Australia Mentor for the 12-month programme.

Throughout my career I have had the great fortune to coach and mentor some incredible talented young people, it is a role I take very seriously and one, which I find wholly enriching.
