A DOLLAR woman has been chosen as the host of a brand-new podcast aimed at helping young people navigate issues in their life.

Karolina Pavlikova, 20, is part of a think tank comprised 31 young people across the UK who are current and former Duke of Edinburgh’s Award winners.

This collaborative developed the concept for the podcast, entitled Navigating Now, in partnership with the award-winning podcast production company Mags Creative.

Navigating Now aims to help young people find answers to any big questions they have about any aspects of life.

Key topics discussed on the podcast include social media and identity, mental health and careers, with guest tips and appearances provided by famous names including Melvin Odoom, Kate Ferdinand, Hannah Cockroft and Jonny Wilkinson.

Speaking about the podcast, Karolina said: “This is a podcast from young people to young people, discussing themes and issues that young people go through and relate to.

“My personal highlight was meeting the whole team in person and seeing how quickly we got to know each other and became comfortable with each other.

“I have never felt such enjoyment filming a TikTok!”

Karolina, who is currently studying in Edinburgh, is one of three hosts on episodes four and seven of Navigating Now, which focus on mental health and relationships.

She achieved her Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards (DofE) in Slovakia and completed her Golf DofE at Dollar Academy.

All episodes of Navigating Now are available to listen to on Apple, Spotify and all major podcast platforms. They can also be found on TikTok @NavigatingNowPod and @dofeuk on Instagram.
