A few years ago, I probably would have said that I did not feel in control of my life. I was fortunate to have loving grandparents who never stopped supporting me and to come across The Prince's Trust which helped me set up my business. They were some of the helping hands which have enabled me to be in a position today to help so many young girls reach their potential.

Dramatic changes in the UK's political climate in recent weeks have had a profound effect on everyone, both young and old. Naturally, there is an air of uncertainty about the future and it's unsurprising that recent polls show anxieties have been particularly felt by the younger generation.

While it's great to see an increase in entrepreneurs in these areas, I believe that young people can establish companies in any field they choose. With the right frame of mind, anything is possible. If you're thinking about becoming your own boss just remember, you don't have to do it alone.

We Should All Be Doing Our Part to Ensure Our Younger Generation Is a Happy and Successful One

Too many young people are growing up with no support or guidance. With no-one to turn to, many of these young people are battling issues such as long-term unemployment, addiction, homelessness and depression, alone. Life can seem very bleak for these young people, and we need to help them before it is too late. This is why I am a proud Ambassador for The Prince's Trust. I am a huge supporter of the youth charity's work because they believe every young person deserves a chance to succeed in life.

The Waking Nightmare

Anxiety is different for everyone, but for me it's something that's with me all day, every week, always. It's like the feelings you have during a nightmare but I have them in normal life. I feel unexplainable panic, nervousness and discomfort. I worry about conversations, apprehensive to say anything in case I say something wrong. I worry about my peers' disapproval, afraid of negative feedback, of not fitting in and more.

I had the absolute pleasure to spend the afternoon recently with The Prince's Trust and HRH The Prince of Wales visiting some amazing young designers being supported by The Prince's Trust. It never ceases to amaze me how much passion and drive these young entrepreneurs have in relation to their business and they are so incredibly talented.

What Makes a Great Role Model

Dame Martina Milburn | Posted 21.07.2013 | UK Universities & Education
Dame Martina Milburn

Sadly, thousands of the young people we help at The Prince's Trust do not grow up surrounded by positive role models. Many have had difficult childhoods, or grown up in workless households, with no one to turn to for advice about how to apply for a job or do well in an interview. They may look up to successful people they see in the media, but without the right support, they feel that their own dreams are out of reach. At The Prince's Trust, however, we are determined to prove them wrong.
