It was a prophetic word given at Soul Survivor which inspired Gemma Hunt to pursue a career in the media.

In part two, Premier's Simon Tuck sits down with the MOBO award winning artist Faith Child to talk about his music, and how he's coped following his father passing away from Covid-19 earlier this year.

Interview Sessions Ep 8 with Gemma Hunt

Always Better than Yesterday with Ryan Hartley | A Podcast for Heart Centred Leaders

Ep 8 of the Always Better than Yesterday Interview Sessions was with the inspiring Gemma Hunt 🙌🏻I approached Gemma because I think she is a perfect example of what it means to love what you do and I think she is a wonderful role model for young children in her role at the CBBC ☠️I really want to be able to show to young people that successful people are no different to them and that with the right attitude and mindset, anything is possible. 🏆It was great to hear Gemma talk about how she found out what she loved to do from an early age which was to entertain children. However, had she listened to her career adviser and played it safe, she may have never ended up fulfilling her hearts desire, her potential and inspiring thousands of young people. 👏🏻At the end of the interview I asked what her 3 big lessons in life were so far. Her response was beautiful. Here’s the short version:1️⃣ follow your hearts desire2️⃣ keep your cheerleaders close3️⃣ always believe in yourself
