Voice of God summary: "In a category absolutely packed with amazing talent, the winner stood out for the judges because of how she used her own experience to help those from more disadvantaged backgrounds, including making sure they have smart clothes to wear for interviews. It's clear she has earned the respect of her colleagues in a short space of time, with senior executives giving her truly glowing testimonials. An inspiring entry."
