A young woman from Carshalton has won an award for her business aimed at empowering women.

Her social enterprise, She is You, hold workshops and events with a heavy focus on raising the self-esteem and self-confidence of young women.
Sutton Council leader, Ruth Dombey, said: “Caroline is a great role model for young women and shows how much can be achieved through hard work and determination.
