Positive Kids feature – December 2018

Watching 150 Year 8 pupils empowering each other through the words of one of my inspirational short verses was like music to my ears. It was a great, motivational finale, not only for the students, but for myself too.

I had been booked to speak to the pupils about mental health. Sharing with them some of my own personal experiences with mental illness for better understanding and clarity. Not my first speaking engagement. Over the past five years working as an inspirational speaker, I have been booked for mental health seminars, AGM’s, wellbeing events and networking meetings, but being on this stage was important to me. Even during my darkest days I was passionate about children and young adults, raising substantial amounts of money organising various fundraising events for the NSPCC.
