Holly was educated in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire, at Bowland High School before going on to complete her A Levels at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School’s Sixth Form. Alongside her studies, she also worked as an Assistant Teacher at Ribble Valley Dance where she experienced first-hand the direct impact self-esteem had on the children’s ability to perform.
This experience ignited her desire to work with children and young people and was supported by her interest in the mental and physical wellbeing of others. Subsequently leading her to study a degree in Psychology with Sport and Exercise Science, at Newcastle University.
Holly’s studies have given her an in-depth understanding of self-esteem and self-belief from a scientific and clinical viewpoint. Her placement year at Building Self-Belief CIO now provides an excellent opportunity to be involved in the charity sector and further broaden her experience.
Holly is excited about being involved with a charity promoting the enhancement of self-belief in children and is keen to put the knowledge gleaned through her studies into practice. She is looking forward to meeting and working with young people in the coming year and contributing to their development and wellbeing.
