What does that really mean, 'to be you?'
Recently I shared my thoughts to a group of Year 9 pupils in Newry...
'Remember this, you are all human yet there will never be another YOU...
Every single one of you are Unique.
YOU have your own voice, your own body, your own skin, your own talents, your own skills, your own goals, your own mind, you have your own life to live...for you...
Express how you FEEL and never be ashamed to do so. Whatever your friends are doing it doesn't mean that you need to copy them, stand out and Be You.
Here was their response when I asked,
'Who is ready to be themselves?'
