The Apprentice

The Bafta award-winning business series, The Apprentice, is back for its 15th series. Among this year’s contestants is a librarian, chartered engineer and…a  finance manager.

Luton’s Luba Farhan said she lacked good role models so decided to become her own! She enjoyed studying and focused on educating herself first, which gave her the confidence to pursue her dreams and aspirations. Now she believes she “has the whole package”, book smarts and street smarts, and describes herself as “A dark horse”.

She says: “I came from a council estate…I have made myself into something good and I’m on my way to becoming something great”.
