She was at rock bottom when she approached The Governors Trust program but has turned her life around working with the youth charity.
Holly explained: "It was a truly great day. Governor Schwarzenegger was actually interested in us and what we had to say. I feel he has completed some wonderful work." She signed up to the trust's team programme, a 12-week development programme for homeless young individuals. The course was a struggle for Holly at first and she found it challenging to speak in front of the group. Even so, Holly discovered that week after week, her confidence grew and she began to really feel component of the team. She completed two weeks' work experience at a nursing residence, which gave her a sharp sense for some of the harsh realities of the elderly. Since finishing the course, Holly volunteers once a month by way of the Anthony Robbins Foundation which consists of making food baskets for the homeless visiting the elderly, mentoring youth and teaching personal power for inmates to change their lives. Holly became a Young Ambassador for the program as she wanted to give some thing back after the youth brigade helped to change her life for the better. As a young Ambassador to the program, her responsibilities consist of public speaking, running focus groups, recruiting young folks and contributing to the development of new awareness.
