Global debate platform #21Questions was created by Diahanne and has been credited with creating a new approach to debate. Open, raw and real, these events brings together an expert panel from diverse backgrounds to partake in an audience-driven discussion for young women and girls. The idea is to share an understanding of the deeper and wider issues facing modern girls and to facilitate their speaking about their own realities, questions and concerns in a way that that is all too often avoided. Our only rule is that nothing is taboo.

Dr Rhiney is extremely passionate about empowering and mentoring young girls and women. Her compassion, nurturing words, positivity and philosophy of sending the elevator back down has been instrumental in the success of many women today, including myself’.

‘Dear Diahanne, I have been thinking about life a lot lately and I just wanted to say thank you for never giving up on me. You showed me I was loved and I did mean something. You loved me even when I pushed you away and caused you stress. You made me the person I am today because you believed in me! I am an amazing, strong-headed young woman and that’s all down to you! You showed me that life is what you make it and you can do anything if you just believe in yourself’.
