A pupil from a Northwood school has spoken about facing fears and following your dreams as she pursues her beekeeping passion.
Emma, 13, who is a pupil at Northwood College for Girls, featured in a video documenting her love for beekeeping and how it helped her overcome her fears.
The powerful video featured in an ad break for the Pride of Britain awards last year.
Speaking in the video, Emma said: “Bees are just fascinating creatures, the more you learn the more interesting they become. When you come to the apiary you’re always learning even the most experienced beekeepers have told me they’re still learning.
“I used to actually be scared of bees, that’s partly why I started beekeeping to overcome that fear. Facing fears and doing things out of your comfort zone is really important.”
