I was a very shy and anxious child and it held me back in so many ways. As I grew up I realised how important it is to believe in yourself and that self-confidence is really the key in creating a fulfilling and happy life.
I have trained as a Youth Mentor, learning the skills and tools to help our young ones and I am consistently amazed by how easy it can be to change ways of thinking, create positivity, and help these children learn to truly love themselves for who they are.
I love running workshops for girls, with a firm focus on fun creative activities - we work on providing tools to support the girls as they head into their tweens and teens.
One of the workshops I recently ran was creating power bracelets with girls, something to wear to remind them to be brave, that they are loved, and to give them courage. I was so thrilled to hear from many of the girls that these bracelets made a big difference - one girl said
" My bracelet really helped me through a sleepover, because I’m not good with sleepovers, but I could look at it (bracelet) and it reminded me everything was ok. ”
Hence, my joy for the products we supply here - because often the littlest of things can make the biggest difference!
