My name is Lucy Nathanson and my passion is helping children to realise that:

 They are BRAVER than they believe, STRONGER than they seem and SMARTER than they think.

 Because they are!

I have completed a BSc degree in Applied Psychology and Sociology at the University of Surrey.

Whilst spending a year working for an Educational Psychology service, I had an experience which inspired me to devote my life to raising the confidence and self-esteem of children.

I spent three weeks each in eight different schools, and at one school I noticed a child in reception who had selective mutism.

He hadn't spoken at school for the two years he had been there! He had been assessed by a variety of therapists and psychologists but was still mute...

I spent two hours a day in class with the child for ten days, and here I realised my intuitive talent for helping children

Overseas work

Lucy is passionate about raising confidence in children all over the world, even starting an overseas project as a student.

Lucy has developed and implemented a project in Uganda. She worked in a Children's home as a teacher in 2010 where she discussed the needs of the children.

She returned in 2011, after fundraising for a year, and delivered 3 pregnant cows to 3 different children's homes, enabling the children to have milk, and thus nutrition within their diet.

There are many benefits of a cow:

 

  • Having to look after a cow, the children have learnt important agricultural skills which are vital in Uganda.

 

  • The children's homes' also use the manure from the cow to grow fruit and vegetables.

 

  • The children are able to have the milk (and thus nutrition) from the cow within their morning porridge (they previously mixed the porridge with water).

 

  • The children were promised a cow from Lucy and she kept her promise and returned a year later - hopefully this demonstrated to the children that they are special.

 

  • The cow can act as a physical pet/friend, providing comfort, to the children who are mostly orphans.

Lucy appeared on the News in Uganda as well as in the largest selling newspaper and a variety of other publications, including The Surrey Times in the UK.
