MiSP Junior and Youth Ambassadors

MiSP curricula has been taught to thousands of children and young people from all backgrounds in all types of schools and youth-related organisations the UK and beyond. We are keen to celebrate some of the young people who have discovered the benefits of mindfulness for themselves, and who can inspire others to practice mindfulness in their school and in the wider community.


Our Junior & Youth Ambassadors

Defne

Youth Ambassador
Year 9, Neue Stadtschulen St. Gallen, Switzerland

Defne

“Mindfulness helps me to concentrate better. I bring my thoughts together and I can focus. I also play football and mindfulness helps me when I am excited. In my opinion, many more young people should experience and try out mindfulness – it’s such a powerful tool for everyday life.”

Emily

Youth Ambassador
Aged 18, Manchester University, England

Emily

“Mindfulness was a life saver after being involved in the Manchester Arena terrorist attack in 2017. I found it very difficult to deal with the psychological trauma and I used mindfulness to allow me to feel my feelings and accept what I was going through.” Read Emily’s story here: MiSP Youth Ambassadors: Emily Brierley | Mindfulness in Schools Project

George

Youth Ambassador
Year 11, Bishop’s Stortford College, Hertfordshire, England

George

“Mindfulness helps me in many ways: it helps me focus on tasks that need to be completed and it takes away distractions that cause me stress. Mindfulness also allows me to relax and concentrate on myself. I use Beditation to help me relax and sleep. I believe that mindfulness should be taught in schools because it can help students connect with themselves and their feelings which can then reduce stress and help with focus.”

Lena

Junior Ambassador
P4, West Primary, Paisley, Scotland

Lena

“I really like mindfulness and like doing my practice and learning about it. I like to do petal practice and I also use FOFBOC. I use mindfulness to help me concentrate on schoolwork. I have been teaching my mum at home and she is getting quite good at it!”

Logan

Youth Ambassador
Aged 15, Home Educated, Neath, Wales

Logan

“When I feel worried or angry like I might go savage, mindfulness helps me stay calm and relax. The petal practice and the .b breathing practices are my favourites as I can easily use them when I have a wobble moment. I think mindfulness should be taught to everyone not just in schools as it helps people understand how and why they might do things because of the way our brains work and it helps people stay in control, calm and happy.”

Mylie

Junior Ambassador
Year 5, Nine Maidens APA, Redruth, England

Mylie

“I like doing the finger breathing & how many breaths in a minute practice, and I like doing the practices lying down. I like leading the practices in class & helping other people. I also Iove nature, being outside & watching birds.”

Sethan

Junior Ambassador
Year 5, Nine Maidens APA, Redruth, England

Sethan

“Mindfulness helps me to calm down & to do better things, to concentrate which helps with things; it’s just what I do now! I like the FOFBOC best, it’s all silent & you get to sit on a chair whilst doing a Paws b practice, its just fun. I do the practices a little bit at home too. It can help you anytime of the day; if you are getting rage it will always help you. I think it will help you in life”
