What makes a good rolemodel?

28 Jan

We asked Reachout UK’s year 11’s – what is a role model to you?

INSPIRE – Living a successful life, inspire to succeed, positive, ambitious, good image, take pride in their lives, self confident, leads by example, unique, charismatic, good sense of humor, believe in your dreams, turn your life around

Be STRONG – disciplined, courageous, hard working, principles, know right from wrong, honest, know how to deal with problems, morals, does what they say, out spoken, not care if people have negative perceptions of you

SUPPORTIVE – Loyal, selfless, understanding, you can relate to them, respects others, kindness, helps without charge

My Friend Ahmed ” used to be a bad boy, bad footballer, but then he began to focus and now he plays for West Ham, Charlton & Fulham”

” Ahmed chose to focus on football, gave up gangs and became more quiet and focused.  He was close to being locked up and now he stops fights when he used to start them.”

” He had two sides and one was very angry but now he’s changing other people and no one judges him any more and i still see him every day!”

Ahmed is Dylan’s rolemodel and he along with Sam from ReachOut is helping Dylan keep his focus up at school and particularly Math, English and Sports

Thanks to ReachOut and you’re lovely mentors
