I'm running the Manchester 10K on 24th May and since it's my first one I thought I could do with some extra motivation!
Confidence has been such a big journey for me and I'm only starting to find it at the age of 25. Between the ages of 13-17 my self-esteem took a massive hit, mostly due to difficulties faced at school.
I really feel I would have benefited from some guidance when I was in school and someone to tell me what I was capable I of. This charity is extremely valuable to young women at an age when everything feels so uncertain. I feel I really would have benefited from from this kind of mentoring in school so it's amazing to hear that there are people out there to help raise the expectations of girls who are struggling to relase their potential.
