Britain’s Got Talent ’11 semi-finalist, food artist, media personality and Candy Jar’s very own author Nathan Wyburn will be hosting the BulliesOut Young Ambassadors Pride Awards on Saturday 14th November, alongside his fellow Cardiff Times columnist Wayne Courtney.
Nathan has been a proud ambassador for BulliesOut since 2012, and it’s an organisation close to his heart. Having suffered from bullying throughout his childhood and teenage years, and even during university, he has experienced the suffocating impact that bullying can have on people at such a young age first hand, and is keen to take a stand.
In his upcoming release Not That Kind of Art, Nathan has opened up about his painful childhood experiences, and shows that with determination and courage it can be overcome.
“I had a great group of friends, a healthy, balanced social and home life, but emotionally for the greater part of those years I was battling big demons [...] Now all those things I was bullied for are the things I love most about myself, if only I could have known that then”.
The BulliesOut Pride Awards recognises the achievements of the organisations’ Young Ambassadors and volunteers, and comes just before the beginning of Anti-Bullying Week (16th-20th Nov), during which Nathan is looking forward to using his media presence to raise awareness.
Not That Kind of Art will be released mid-November, and is currently available for pre-order via Amazon and the Candy Jar Store.
