A 26-year old businesswoman from Iran is one of sixteen candidates to be a part of the new ‘Apprentice’ series, which kicks off on BBC One on Tuesday 10th May.
Melody Hossaini is the Founder and Director of InspirEngage Ltd, a social enterprise with the aim of improving the lives of children and young people worldwide.
About the company she runs, she said “I�۪m proud of the Global Company I�۪ve built and good at what I do, but the real stars are the incredible young people I meet and work with worldwide. The ones who have nothing (literally in some of the communities I�۪ve worked), and still they have dreams, they want to give something back. They are the true heroes of InspirEngage International.”
Melody joins fifteen other potential ‘Apprentice’s’. Alex Britez Cabral, Edna Agbarha, Zoe Beresford, Vincent Disneur, Leon Doyle, Felicity Jackson, Jim Eastwood, Susan Ma, Edward ‘Atta’ Hunter, Helen Milligan, Tom Pellereau, Ellie Reed, Glenn Ward, Natasha Scribbens and Gavin Winstanley.
Injecting a new spin into the life-changing opportunity, this year’s successful ‘Apprentice’ will no longer win a six figured salary job working in one of Lord Sugar’s businesses. Instead the winner and their business idea will found the basis of a partnership with Lord Sugar, with an investment to the value of �250,000.
‘Apprentice’ starts on Tuesday 10th May at 21:00 on BBC One, with episode two being aired the following day – Wednesday 11th May and then weekly thereafter.
