You Are a Champion: How to Be the Best You Can Be


Marcus Rashford

ABOUT THE BOOK: 

Marcus Rashford MBE is famous worldwide for his skills both on and off the soccer field  but before he was a Manchester United and England soccer player, and long before he started his inspiring campaign to end child food poverty, he was just a kid from Wythens hawe, South Manchester. Now the nation's favorite soccer player wants to show YOU how to achieve your dreams, in this positive and inspiring guide for life.

Written with journalist Carl Anka, You Are a Champion is packed full of stories from Marcuss own life, brilliant advice and top tips from performance psychologist Katie Warriner. It will show you how to be the very BEST that you can be.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 

Marcus Rashford MBE is Manchester United's iconic number 10 and an England International footballer.

During the lockdown imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Marcus teamed up with the food distribution charity FareShare to cover the free school meal deficit for vulnerable children across the UK, raising in excess of 20 million pounds. Marcus successfully lobbied the British Government to u-turn policy around the free food voucher program  a campaign that has been deemed the quickest turnaround of Government policy in the history of British politics  so that 1.3 million vulnerable children continued to have access to food supplies whilst schools were closed during the pandemic.

In response to Marcus's End Child Food Poverty campaign, the British Government committed £400 million to support vulnerable children across the UK, supporting 1.7 million children for the next 12 months.

In October 2020, he was appointed MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours. Marcus has committed himself to combating child poverty in the UK and his book You Are a Champion is an inspiring guide for children about reaching their full potential.
