This year has been a really challenging year - since graduating I've not been able to get a job, my mental health has dipped lower than it ever has before and I'm more insecure about myself than I've ever been before.
When I saw the ad for Brave The Shave, it caught my attention much more than I ever thought it would... I could do it... I could do this one spontaneous thing that wouldn't really change my life that much but could symbolise so much more...
My mum suggested that I could do it on my nanny's birthday (just seven days away!) in her memory. We lost her to cancer two years ago now and she was and is a huge inspiration to my family. And I decided to do it.
Let's raise awareness and money, shall we nan?
