‘before the prince’s trust, i was in debt’
The All Worth It campaign is aiming to change lives… here’s how it can and will work over the next three years
At Look, we like to think we’re worth it. We think you’re worth it. And we’re glad that L’oréal Paris thinks we’re all worth it.
Its new partnership with The Prince’s Trust is a huge deal. New figures released by the charity show that one in three young people doesn’t have any self-belief, while 42 per cent are not in education, training or jobs. Pretty terrible, right?
That’s why the All Worth It campaign is important. It intends to target those with low self-esteem and eradicate their self-doubt through a series of confidence classes. These will be available via The Prince’s Trust’s new digital training platform as well as 18 dedicated UK centres – and the 15 ambassadors will be getting more involved too.
At the launch, we spoke to Leanne Lashley, who first came to The Prince’s Trust in 2014, after she’d been unemployed for a long time. They helped her start her own comedy club called Miswits. She really believes this campaign can make a difference and is now an ambassador for the charity.
‘Growing up I was consumed by self-doubt,’ says Leanne. ‘I suffered a number of traumas and was severely depressed. I took drugs to fill a void. And I was in debt.
‘But with help from The Prince’s Trust and through an incredible support network of friends and family, I was able to build the confidence to face adversity head-on.’
She adds: ‘I went through the programme and managed to get my own business started. Now I want to help others find the self-belief they need to reach their potential, which is why today I’m really proud to be supporting this partnership.’
In their own stories, the 15 ambassadors explain how they overcame their insecurities. But maybe Cheryl puts it best: ‘Realise your potential, build your confidence, change your life.’ It’s a message we’ll be supporting and taking on board. Head to Look.co.uk for more info…
