Watch #Merky Books authors talk about finding their voice


In this inspiring video from Penguin Books UK, Stormzy, international footballer Eniola Aluko (They Don't Teach This) and #Merky Books authors Chelsea Kwakye & Ore Ogunbiyi (Taking Up Space) and Derek Owusu (That Reminds Me) discuss finding your voice and using it.

Hear why Stormzy thinks there's 'nothing more gangster than being well educated', and find out:

  • Why it's important to take time to work out what you're good at.
  • How to use your gifts, talents and passions (or 'super powers', as Eniola calls them!) to break down barriers and find your voice.
  • Tips on how to deal with anxiety and self-doubt in sports.
  • How to maintain your sense of purpose and stay focused when being creative.
  • Why changing how you see failure can create the best opportunities to grow.
