The Inspiring Young Women Programme is designed to encourage young women to realise their aspirations, overcome perceived barriers, be inspired by successful entrepreneurs and women in business, prepare for employment and enterprise, understand pathways to achievement and make positive choices for their future.
I have been asked to talk to the young women about the barrier I faced when at school when I was bullied. I want to share with them how I overcame this barrier and have turned it into something positive by setting up my own social enterprise.
I want all young people to understand that in life we will all face barriers but to never give up. It is possible to turn these negative experiences into positive and successful ones!
