As well as talking about how he got into the media industry, he also spoke about the importance of not being deterred by knock backs when aiming for your dreams.
According to the Daily Echo he told pupils: “I am a former Crestwood pupil, I sat here where you are now. Never did I think I would be back here one day talking about being a Radio One DJ.
“I am in that sort of industry where you have to take the knock backs, but if I had given up all those times I got a rejection letter or just didn’t hear back, I wouldn’t be doing this now
“You have to pick yourself up and start again. If you have the drive then you will do it.”
