Jaz Ampaw-Farr

Born into poverty, sexual abuse and neglect, Jaz Ampaw-Farr believed that she was worthless. But five teachers disagreed, and together embedded an ambitious resilience that saved her from a life of prostitution, crime and drugs. Jaz has spent the rest of her life paying them back. Qualifying as a teacher in 1994, she is a respected literacy expert, consulted by governments worldwide. Jaz is also a TV presenter, media expert, speaker, coach, trainer and author of Because of You, This is Me.
