My name is Melissa and I’m the founder of LEM. I have an extensive history of youth charity work; I’m currently studying social work and eventually hope to become a lecturer. I have a passion for raising mental health awareness after suffering from it myself from an early age. I came up with the concept of LEM after going through the darkest period of my life when I lost my father and felt as though the rest of my life was falling apart. For me, LEM was the string of light and goodness that had me holding on to this world. My hope is to touch others like myself and build a support system for anyone who needed aid in any aspect of their lives, from realising their potential; to having people to talk to and much more. I hope to one day take LEM onto a national and even international platform through schools, colleges and universities.
My name is Earl Blackman, I am a leadership development coach and I also specialist in Exclusive Advancement. My life’s purpose is to teach and train people how to gain control in all seven areas of life because many of us live a life of imprisonment and are literally just occupying space on earth until we die. I firmly believe that everyone deserves to live a life of impact, joy and fulfilment and this is my motivation.
I am a burns saviour who spent 19 years not telling my story. Telling my story
has been the best thing I have ever done it has given me purpose and opened so
many doors for me. I am now a motivational speaker, and a public influencer.
I have done work with the BBC and have worked on other smaller organisations.
My greatest achievement is the fact that I have helped millions of people who
I don’t even know. I am humbled by the amount of people that watch my work and
I am truly grateful for God’s grace. I feel like my life is gaining more and
more meaning the more projects I am involved in and the more people I come across.
Talking from my life experiences is my passion and I am praying for more opportunities.
Along with all my personal projects I also have a full-time job after graduating from Staffordshire University with a Bachelor of Science Degree. In 2018 I will be launching my mentoring programme and will be taking part in other projects I am involved in.
My passion is people, everyone!
