Kimberly Wyatt joins Youth Sport Trust as ambassador

2015 Masterchef Champion and former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt has today joined the Youth Sport Trust as a school sport ambassador.

Kimberly, who recently became a mum for the first time, will support the Youth Sport Trust to promote physical activity, particularly within primary schools, and encourage more young people to get active.

Her first activity got underway in West London, where she hosted a dance workshop for 13 excited young girls from Cirencester Kingshill School. Kimberly created a bespoke routine for the girls and spent time discussing some of the challenges young people face, balancing the world of social media with getting involved with sport and physical activity.

Kimberly said: “As a young girl I loved gymnastics and figure skating, and my dream was to compete on the stage, so I found a dance studio and fell in love straight away.

“I didn’t have lots of confidence, but dance taught me how to express myself emotionally and have a bigger purpose, which gave me a voice. That’s why I’m so inspired to be working with the Youth Sport Trust, talking to young people who lack that confidence to get active.

“You might not be a competitive sports person, but there is a real sense of achievement when you find something that you are passionate about because that can spur you on to do great things.”
