Have your say

Determination is something we all need to call on at some point in our lives.

Whether it’s short or long term, we push ourselves to the limit to ensure we get where we want to be.

As we continuously confront obstacles as young people, from exams to problems at home, if we remain determined, we will get through anything.

An example from my life is when I push myself to represent young people and make a difference.

Confronted by challenges such as disagreements and questioning, I focus, overcome the challenge and get to where I aimed.

Without determination I wouldn’t have achieved that.

As a young person you may relate this to your life in current situations such as exams, competitions, college applications, university deadlines and more.

Keep that inner courage in yourself going and show people that we can do what we wish despite whatever challenges we may face.
