My story

[p][b][u]WEEK 1:[/u][/b][/p][p]Now that I have officially completed my first week at camp, and now that I am actually making this page, there's no backing out now... I mean I even feel nervous just writing this, (and I am properly psyching myself up right now, believe me! )... I have never ever even punched anyone or anything before in my life... but.............[/p][p][b][u]I'M FIGHTING FOR CHARITY [/u][/b] [b]...Boxing in a ring...against a real human opponent...[/b] *ARGHHH*[/p][p]Those of you who know me, know that after all these years I am finally pursuing a career in a field that I feel incredibly passionate about. I am nearly at the end of my first year training to becoming a Mental Health Nurse, so as well as the Mental challenge, I thought why not add a Physically intense challenge to my year as well, really push myself outside my comfort zone to raise awareness and money for a Charity that I hold close to my heart, and basically end this year with a [b]*BANG*[/b] !!![/p][p]I am committing myself to 8 weeks training, and of course doing this challenge I will be achieving some personal goals, but if you've seen the way I clench my fist, you'll know that I am at great risk to potentially losing some as well (quite literally LOL). Butttt I'm hoping the more support and sponsors I get will be an encouragement for me to train harder and to send the message that there is always support out there for you.[/p][p]That brings me to my Charity, [b]The Samaritans... they are there for anyone who needs someone, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. After volunteering with them, it really opened my eyes to the incredible service they offer, they are there to listen, with no judgement, no pressure, and to help you work through what's on your mind. They'll never tell you what to do. If you need any kind of emotional support, call them free from any phone [u]116 123[/u].[/b][/p][p]So if you can sponsor me to raise money for such a needed and appreciated Charity please dig deep - so that for each pound it at least makes me going black and blue more worthwhile lol.[/p][p]Oh and... if you do want to watch such catastrophe, and want to provide me with some moral support... [b]FIGHT NIGHT[/b] is Saturday August 3rd, let me know as soon as possible for tickets.[/p][p]Thanks for your support, really appreciate it [lt]3 love to youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu[/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]*** UPDATE POST - WEEK 8 - 31/07/19... only 3 days to go till Fight Night:[/u][/b][/p][p]As an advocate for the Samaritans & for Mental Health, I wanted to use this Charity Boxing Fight as an opportunity to raise as much awareness as possible...♡[/p][p]Mental health is not always something that you can see, but that doesn't mean that it's not there, or that someone isn't struggling... Someone with a mental illness can lead a full life, BUT may hide their suffering behind a mask, and pretend that everything is okay (which is what I have tried to portray in my photos). You never know what someone is going through, or what lies beneath - so always be kind... especially to yourself.[/p][p]Around 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem, yet the shame and silence can be as bad as the mental health problem itself - so it is so important for us to break this stigma 💪🤯.[/p][p]*** Personally, I am totally pushing myself out my comfort zone getting in a boxing ring, but I am absolutely overwhelmed with all the donations and support that I have received for my upcoming fight so far, so thank you for fighting with me! And this, this is actually the key message that I really want to push... ♡•••"You don't need to fight any battle alone - someone is ALWAYS there to support you while you're fighting whatever battle you're up against!"•••♡[/p][p]I am so unbelievably nervous, but I am using every bit of strength and courage I have (with the support of others) to give a voice and fight the fight for the people who are struggling![/p][p]Pleaseee share to further raise this awareness, to let someone who needs to know, that someone is always there for you... don't be afraid to talk - It's okay not to be okay. & if you ever need a friend, I am here for you too x😍[/p]
