“FBB has helped me to speak out more in class. It has improved my behaviour in class as I have learnt that there is always a consequence to what you. Timi has helped me build my confidence and taught me to be more resilient. He has helped me to not always react negatively to things. I don’t really get annoyed on the pitch anymore as i have learnt that you can’t always win so you shouldn’t always expect to win.”

What are your passions/hobbies?
Football - I first got into football at year 1, I started taking it seriously at year 5 when I got into my first team. Ever since, I've always loved and enjoyed it because and there were professional footballers like Mbappe that inspired me to be like him. He inspires me because he started playing football from a young age, and has gone on to become one of the best footballers of all time already.
PS4 - I’m really good at it. I play it in my spare time and it allows me to interact with friends whilst playing the games I love to play like FIFA, Fortnight, GTA, and Rainbow 6 Siege.
Hockey - In year 3, every lunchtime there used to be a hockey club. Sometimes I would go there and play hockey and I started to get good at it like football. People used to always think i was the best which encouraged me to play more, now I like playing it and in my spare time, if my mum says I'm not allowed to play PS4, I play hockey.
What are some of the challenges you’ve faced before FBB?
I struggled sometimes with concentrating in lessons and speaking out in public. It made me shy when i was asked to present my work in front of the class in the school. I was never really naughty in school. Before FBB, I get annoyed easily on the football pitch.
How has FBB helped you to overcome those challenges?
FBB has helped me to speak out more in class. It has improved my behaviour in class as I have learnt that there is always a consequence to what you. Timi has helped me build my confidence and taught me to be more resilient. He has helped me to not always react negatively to things. I don’t really get annoyed on the pitch anymore as i have learnt that you can’t always win so you shouldn’t always expect to win.
What has been your favourite experience with FBB so far?
Meeting professional footballers like Aaron Wan Bissaka and Chris Smalling. I enjoyed the way they taught us how to do well in school and i got to learn what a footballer is really like. I have enjoyed the variety of trips we’ve been on, especially tour. I got to meet new people and play football. I also enjoyed the experience of going away for a few days, and I also enjoyed meeting some of the new staff members like Michael, Richard, and Kelvyn.
What do you hope to do in the future?
I hope to be a professional footballer in the future. My plan B if it doesn’t happen would be to work at a place like FBB or a youth club. If not that, then to create my own football business.

“Chrisandre has improved massively, he has understood the importance of working in a team. He often reflects brilliantly on situations and is now thinking about how his behaviour can effect others”
