Professor Nell Arnold and Marcus Pedro joint project Three Warriors Within allowed them to share their common goal and passion in working with and motivating young people. They were both unable to read and write and were bullied at school. They both had teachers and mentors who encouraged them to grow and challenge themselves. They have both achieved great things in life and are following their passions. They now share their experience and wisdom with others, to give them the tools and opportunity to build self-confidence and reach for their dreams.
