Jenna is a Special Speaker on the 21st Century Legacy ‘Be The Best You Can Be’ programme. As a Special Speaker Jenna’s role is to inspire and motivate the young people to be the best they can be in whatever they do in life, and Jenna does this by using her own personal story that demonstrates success and hardship. Hard work, determination, setting goals, having dreams, overcoming obstacles, never giving up, and finally self-belief are key themes that run throughout Jenna’s story.
What is 21st Century Legacy?
21st Century Legacy is a Charity founded by Dr David Hemery CBE as an Educational Legacy to go beyond Sport and beyond 2012 to help fulfil a Bid promise that the London 2012 Olympic Games would be an inspiration to the youth of Britain and the rest of the world.
The Vision of the Charity is that all young people are enabled to achieve their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as responsible individuals, citizens and members of their communities
21st Century Legacy’s Mission is to inspire and engage young people through the ‘Be the Best you can Be!’ Programme to discover their unique potential and empower them to pursue and fulfil their dreams.
In 2010 the Be the Best you can Be! Programme was launched nationally for Secondary Schools.
In 2011 the Programme was developed for Primary Schools, piloted for Looked-after Young People (in a non-School setting) and also adapted for Special Schools.
Since September 2011 over 93,000 young people in Primary and Secondary Schools across the UK have engaged in the Programme.
