Nicola Adams helped unveil a ground-breaking partnership between the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) and UNICEF, the world’s leading children’s organisation, at Swinton Primary School in the east end of Glasgow today.
I believe that every child has the right to reach their full potential and to be the best they can be.
The partnership aims to touch the lives of children in Scotland and across the Commonwealth. Swinton Primary is a UNICEF UK Rights Respecting School, and an example of UNICEF UK’s work at grass roots level in Scotland.
Nicola joined excited pupils and helped them unveil the “Best You Can Be” Thought Wall, which illustrated their hopes and dreams - and what they – and children across the Commonwealth - need to fulfil them and be the best they can be.
She said: “I am absolutely delighted to support this partnership and be part of the event this morning. It was great to meet the children and hear about their aspirations and what they need to be the best they can be. This is a fantastic collaboration which will reach out to every child in Scotland and much further afield.
“I believe that every child has the right to reach their full potential and to be the best they can be and it was great to be able to tell the children my story and how I fulfilled my own potential. Hopefully there will be some inspirational messages they can take from that but I know I have definitely been inspired by the young people I have met here today.”
