EVERYONE ELSE
IS ALREADY TAKEN"

MY STORY: Cory Stewart

I started working as an Impact mentor in May 2017. I also work as a counsellor and have previously done this in a local secondary school. I have also been a key worker in a South Gloucestershire youth hostel for 16-25s, supporting young people to get back into education, employment or moving into independent living. I love working with people on a one to one basis and it’s a privilege to witness the changes we can make to our lives, given the right encouragement and support.

 

MY ROLE MODEL: Will Smith

I think that Will Smith is a great role model for achievement through passion and commitment. He maintains a positive towards others and believes in making a difference in the world. He is one of the few celebrities who uses this status and position in society for good. This is something I really admire and respect.

“On the other side of your maximum fear are all of the best things in life” Will Smith

I love to travel to new places and to experience new cultures. I also really like rollercoasters and being in the sea (not at the same time)! In my free time I enjoy going to the gym, playing my guitar and cycling.
