6th Form and
College Talks

6th Form and College

My story is one of triumph over adversity, it inspires and motivates all ages.

 

The way I tell my story brings to life the importance of accepting and respecting others no matter who they are, understanding that having resilience and persistence is key to overcoming tough times in your life and ultimately believing that the limitations we think we have are only in our own thoughts.

Perfectly pitched for 11 to 18 year olds, my honest and often raw story telling focuses the talk on my life story.

 

Covering subjects like bullying, growing up, LGBTQ+, suicide, challenges, overcoming adversity, mental health and many others. Even the hardened secondary school student can’t pretend to not be interested.

Hearing Ben talk about his life experiences and what got him into running was really inspirational. It definitely got me thinking about the fact that we don't always know what is going on in someone's life and how important it is to be kind.
