Honoured to be nominated as role model

I am very honoured to be considered a role model.   I just try to help people to be the best version of themselves based on my own personal life experiences and the people who have been my own role models and inspiration.  I am also grateful to the role models and mentors who continue to support my children and I.

The National Diversity Awards –These awards are for people who inspire other individuals through their work, through their commitment to helping others, through their infectious personalities and through adversity.  https://nationaldiversityawards.co.uk/about-us/

Positive Role Model Award

The importance of having a role model can never be underestimated; role models help us to be driven, to focus, to achieve goals and strive to gain success. The positive role model award recognises an individual within the community who shows selflessness, drives change and works tirelessly to inspire others.

I volunteer through Inspiring the Futures  and Schools Pastor programme  where I inspire, encourage and support children and young people in schools to be the best version of themselves.

 

My story

I am  a single mother of two teenage boys. I run my businesses as an accountancy trainer and a happiness and wellbeing coach.

.In 2003 my Self Esteem and Confidence was knocked down to an all time low when I became divorced, my home was due to be repossessed, I had mountain of debts, had two toddlers to look after and three months later I was made redundant from my work! Their have been times when I have felt like giving up.  To the outside world I would appear happy but behind closed doors it was another story of  sadness anxiety and depression as I was too embarrassed to ask for help! For years i could not look in the mirror i felt ugly and i let the negative words and comments of people drag me down.

USING MY PAIN TO BE A GAIN HELPING OTHERS

Year’s on, my life has been transformed as I managed to get help from various organisations and opened up to real friends and family members who helped me along the way.  I created my persona Confident Queen with a mission to help as many people as I can, to develop the confidence to find solutions to whatever is holding them back.  I appeared on Britain’s Got Talent in 2012 dressed up as Confident Queen and was able to wow the audience and judges with my feel good song which is available for download and  used by many to uplift their spirits.

GROUPS I HAVE SET UP AND RUN

I set up these community projects using my own resources and to make a difference to others – Confidence Children Holiday Club, Happiness Project Kent and the Single Parent support group with the help of Gingerbread the Single Parent Charity. http://www.confidentchildren.wordpress.com

MY LAUGHTER AND WELLBEING CLUBS

I trained to be a laughter YOGA leader with United Minds and have since been delivering laughter and wellbeing sessions to a number of organisations as well as setting up 3 laughter clubs for people to come share experience and do fun stuff to make them feel good leave in a positive mood.  I have also created other products and services to help individuals to develop inner peace, contentment and happiness.
