Jaz Ampaw-Farr is an unstoppable force. Often referred to as the resilience ninja, Jaz has travelled the world advising governments and educators and inspires thousands every year into action - perhaps most notably through her record breaking ted talk that has had over 100,000 views and still growing.
As a former teacher and now Keynote speaker, TV Presenter and Author, Jaz’s authentic honesty and humour has a positive impact in everything she does. And then some.
“The uncomfortable nature in my experience is every time you do take a tiny step towards discomfort, it's like floodgates. It releases so many other people. Every time you do that, you literally light fires in people. You cause the change that you want to see.”
In the third episode of Are You Sitting Uncomfortably? host Gemma Greaves and Jaz explore her experiences of being a foster care kid and a homeless teen, getting uncomfortable about race, and having the courage to show up as your full-fat self.
