About Rare Rising Stars


Watch highlights of Rare Rising Stars 2013

At Rare, we are very fortunate to meet extraordinary students on an almost day-to-day basis. Beyond helping these individuals identify and achieve their potential, we recognise that they all have the power to inspire their own generation through sharing their achievements, ambitions and triumphs over adversity. Knowing that there are always more high achievers to be discovered, a nationwide search for the brightest black students led us to some tremendous talents.

Now in its fifth year, Rare Rising Stars showcases the incredible achievements of the best black students in the UK.

Returning judges David Lammy MP, Trevor Phillips OBE, Jean Tomlin OBE and Tom Chigbo, were joined on the judging panel by Sam Gyimah MP and Adrian Joseph, Director of Search Advertising at Google for Northern and Central Europe, to select yet another cohort of exceptional black students.

This year�s top ten were revealed on Thursday 11th July 2013 at the House of Commons and we are privileged to share their stories with you.
