What do you do for Be Me project?
Hey, my name is Lu and I was one of the founders of Be Me. My week consists of going into secondary schools delivering our course and connecting with young people to help them find their confidence. Some of my week is based at our head office doing loads of behind the scenes work for Be Me like training volunteers, ordering stock for the gifts and working with my amazing team, trying to help them all feel happy and positive. I love all the people I work with and they all love working with Be Me to support you all.
Tell us about two highs in your life so far…
Obviously, my main high is loving God and having my wonderful husband and two beautiful children. I think the other high would be flying in a helicopter over the Grand Canyon.
What about two lows?
When I was first married, my husband was very poorly for 4 years with a heart condition and it was horrible watching him suffer. But the good news is that he received a heart transplant from an amazing donor! Probably my second low would be looking back at my school life. I found it really hard and failed a lot. This made me feel really different and like I was something missing that I couldn’t find.
Tell us a lesson you have learned in life…
I try not focus on the things that I struggle with and enjoy the things I am good at. These days I like being different and being the best version of me. Also, I try and focus on today step by step, and not worry too far into the future.
Thanks Lu! Stay tuned for another inroduction to one of our team very soon!
