Campaign: To promote self-belief and self-confidence in young people

There was a time when I was full of self-doubt and negative emotions.

 

But I realised that I was using this as an excuse to never push myself and experience life’s opportunities.

 

After a lot of hesitation I took up boxing. It was one of the best things I've ever done.

 

Another major turning point was leaving a friendship group which I knew was bad for me. It wasn’t the easiest thing to do but I’m glad I did it in the end.

 

My advice is just do it – take that first step.

 

If you find something you really like, you will be happier. I believe success is there to be achieved by anyone - they just need to believe they can get there.
