Blogs will feature a personal perspective about my three passions: the #HeyareyouOK? campaign, STORM Skills Training CIC, and my journey as a Social Entrepreneur.

The #HeyareyouOK? The campaign’s mission is to promote a culture that teaches us to recognise distress and to talk about it openly and honestly; a culture that teaches us to ask for help without fear of being stigmatised; and a culture that teaches us that sometimes we need to reach out to those we think may be finding life difficult to cope with. It doesn’t take much. Simply asking #HeyareyouOK? Can make all the difference.
