"You don’t have to be defined by your qualifications" says Jamal Edwards MBE
Creative There is so much opportunity for young people to thrive in the UK’s fast-paced creative industries.
"You don’t have to be defined by your qualifications, your background, or anything other than your passion for your work." Says Jamal Edwards MBE, MBA, founder of SBTV and ambassador for the Prince's Trust.
"When you figure out what you want to focus on, work hard at it, keep innovating and learn from everything that happens along the way. You’ll find the opportunities are there for the taking if you’re prepared to put the work in.
“If you find your talent and give it everything you’ve got, there’s no limit to what you can achieve.
"When I was starting out, I realised my own passion was for making videos and built on that to get to where I am today. I never thought when I was starting out that I’d end up with a successful business, meet so many incredible stars and be made an MBE, or be in a position to pass on some of what I’ve learned to others through my work with organisations like The Prince’s Trust"
