You Are A Champion: Unlock Your Potential, Find Your Voice and Be The BEST You Can Be
Author(s): Marcus Rashford
It's hard to know what is possible until you start. You have to be able to dream big and be prepared to work towards your dreams. Good things take time. I've achieved a lot, but it didn't come in one go - big things rarely happen overnight, and good things rarely happen as if by magic . . .
Marcus Rashford is famous worldwide for his skills both on-and-off the pitch - but before he was a Manchester United and England footballer, and long before he started his inspiring campaign to end child food poverty, he was just an average kid from Wythenshawe, South Manchester. Now, Marcus Rashford MBE wants to show YOU how to achieve your dreams, in this positive and inspiring guide-for-life.
No matter who you are and no matter where you come from, every single person in the world has the potential to be a champion. In You Are a Champion, the nation's favourite footballer gives you the tools you need to reach your full potential, showing you how to be the very BEST version of yourself you can be.
Written with journalist Carl Anka, this empowering guide is packed full of stories from Marcus's own life, brilliant advice and top-tips from performance psychologist Katie Warriner. Perfect for readers who need to hear that they already are champions - they just might not know it yet.

An inspiring, positive and practical guide for teens from Marcus Rashford MBE, footballer and child food poverty campaigner.
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 so that 1.3 million vulnerable children continued to have access to food supplies whilst schools were closed during the pandemic. 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.
