#ThrowbackThursday at last week's #PreventEvent at college, we were introduced  to Nicola Benyahia by one of our #YoungPreventLeaders Aqsa.
While our cohort of students listened, Nicola bravely spoke about how her son was affected by radicalisation and extremism and getting through changes after losing her son to a tragedy. 
She is the founder of charity Families for Life - which aims to support families through the psychological and counter radicalisation process. She hopes to support and empower families to combat the shame of radicalisation and provide them with a platform for their voices to be heard. Nicola also is on a mission to spread awareness of prevention
