Ashwaaq is a year 13 student who is one of many of the success stories at B Young Stars. Ashwaaq been attending the club since year 11 to get guidance on her education after her initial GCSEs results. She decided to attend sessions with B young Stars and focus on her studies. Her dedicated time with their teachers led Ashwaaq to re-take her English Language GCSE exam in which she achieved an A. Ashwaaq said:
