If the pandemic has taught me anything, it’s that I want to spend my time doing things that help people and make a difference. Things that are more worthwhile.
This week I got the opportunity to present to a group of Child and Youth Studies students at the University of Derby about eating disorders in young people.
It was brilliant!
I used all of my own experience and resources from the charity I work with and put a presentation together to help the group understand these complex conditions better. I learnt a lot of new facts along the way too.
We covered the visible and less common signs that someone might be struggling as well as misconceptions and created a toolkit of skills to support a young person.
The class was so engaged, asking thoughtful and insightful questions. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.
It was such a rewarding experience and the feedback was really positive. Everyone learnt something from my time with them and I really felt like I had made an impact.
I love days like this!
