Adriana

“Now I have something to enjoy every Friday – this helps me focus when I’m in school. It means even if I’m having a tough day at school, I’ve got something to keep me going. At the beginning of year 7 I had really low confidence, but ever since FBB I feel much more confident. I have a lot of people to support me now and I feel like I can express myself more. I feel like if I had ideas for fashion they would all support them. My FBB coaches are funny and easy to get along with and they help to support us a lot. I’ve seen how they support other people and I think they do it really well.”

1 year

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Funny, Persistent, Annoying

How would your teachers describe you in 3 words?

Chatty, funny, loud

What are your passions/hobbies?

My passion is fashion. I’ve always had a passion for it. I have learnt how to sew, I go to classes every weekend, it took me about 6 months but now I’m pretty good at it. I’m hoping to start making my own clothes now.

What are some of the challenges you’ve faced before FBB?

I struggled to concentrate on my work. I have a short attention span, I don’t know why. Sometimes even if I’m halfway through listening to a song, I end up changing it to the next one.

In class, I could be writing an essay, and half way through I end up changing the whole plot.

I also used to doubt myself and compare myself to other students. It made me feel embarrassed about my passions and skills.

How has FBB helped you to overcome those challenges?

Now I have something to enjoy every Friday – this helps me focus when I’m in school. It means even if I’m having a tough day at school, I’ve got something to keep me going. At the beginning of year 7 I had really low confidence, but ever since FBB I feel much more confident. I have a lot of people to support me now and I feel like I can express myself more. I feel like if I had ideas for fashion they would all support them. My FBB coaches are funny and easy to get along with and they help to support us a lot. I’ve seen how they support other people and I think they do it really well.

What has been your favourite experience with FBB so far?

My favourite experience with FBB has to be the second session we did, the sanctuary session. A lot of people opened up and shared their feelings and I felt like I opened up a lot and people supported my decisions. There was a lot of tears but we were all there for each other. I haven’t gone on any trips yet but I hope to do so in future.

What do you hope to do in the future?

I would love to become a fashion designer. Maybe even one day I’ll work for Gucci.

Quote from FBB Project Lead

"Adriana came into FBB as one of the youngest in the group and has thrived due to her passion for fashion being ignited. She particularly enjoyed The Women Who Changed the Game scheme of work which allowed her to see the fashion side of football, and has led to her more actively engaging in football sessions. As such, she was selected for a careers insight day at VOGUE Magazine where she was dubbed by staff as the next best fashion designer in the UK!"

Quote from your link teacher

"Adriana is someone with so much personality and interests. FBB has allowed her to explore these and feel more comfortable being herself, this had led to a happier Adriana in school."
