My name is Vanessa aka “Inspiring Vanessa” I am 11 years old and I am one of the youngest motivational speakers in the UK. My journey began when I was nine years old in 2016 when I attended an inspirational event and I was brought up on stage and then I had realised my passion. I also started my YouTube so in April 2018 will be two years since I’ve started.
I have been travelling around the world inspiring adults and children. I have written two books one is an audiobook which is called '12 keys to success' and my published book is 'The 5 secrets to public speaking success'.
I’m really passionate about inspiring children and adults around the world, I became the youngest volunteer for Hiving charity, when I travelled in January 2017, to build an Orphanage for children in western Kenya. I am also very passionate about helping homeless people. I have supported two projects so far in December 2017 one was “Back to kindness” event and second helping the homeless with Soup Kitchen Brixton.
In the last year I have also been given several awards for work I do.
I am also a YouTuber and a vlogger, I love sharing my journey with others and taking them on an adventure. My advise to you is to be unique because you can never fail by being yourself. What ever your dreams are please do something about it, because if I can write books, travel the world, film videos, go to school and speak at events at my age so can you! And of cause I couldn’t do all of this without my amazing mum Veronika Sam, who helps me to stay organised, stays up late to schedule my videos and organising events.
My favourite quote is - "80% of people won’t like what you do but 20% will make you rich, famous and happy!"
