*** AND WHY YOUR DIAMOND MIGHT SURPRISE YOU! ***
It might seem hard to believe, but the Twilight star Robert Pattinson was so shy as a teenager he couldn’t speak to girls. Yes, even film-stars are insecure. Why? Because sometimes it’s hard to see our own strengths.
Your YouRock Diamond will help you discover strengths and work skills you never knew you had – as well as showcasing the ones you know you have. So you might be surprised by the results.
You might think, for example, that you’re not very ‘creative’ or that you’re not ‘organisational’. But actually, you could be more skilled in these areas than you thought.
The good news is this: your Diamond, just like your skills, isn’t fixed. So as you complete your profile (by inserting more and more activities into it), your Diamond keeps evolving – and you’ll keep learning more about your strengths.
Just like these seven did…
ITALIAN MOTORCYCLIST: MAX BIAGGI
The 43-year-old Italian racer, Max Biaggi, is a former Grand Prix motorcycle World Champion. Yet as a kid, he was far more interested in football than racing. In fact, he didn’t start racing until he was 18, which may seem quite young but compared to other motor stars is very late.
GERMAN ACTRESS: SIBEL KEKILLI
You might recognise Sibel Kekilli, 34, from the TV series Game of Thrones in which she plays Shae. But Sibel was already in her early twenties when she began acting – and she didn't even know she could act! Sibel was out shopping one day, when she got ‘spotted’ by a casting agent who suggested she audition for the film, Head-On. The rest is history.
AFRICAN-AMERICAN BALLERINA: MISTY COPELAND
American ballet dancer Misty Copeland, 31, is one of the world’s top dancers. So she probably danced all her life, like most ballerinas? Wrong! Misty had no idea she could dance until she was 13-years-old and a teacher suggested she tried ballet classes. Now she’s a leading dancer for the American Ballet Theatre. (We just hope she’s thanked her teacher.)
BRITISH CELEBRITY CHEF: BARRY LEWIS
This 31-year-old British chef has his own cookbook and YouTube channel that’s endorsed by top TV chef, Jamie Oliver. But three years ago he could barely cook an egg! Barry says he was “scared of the kitchen” so in order to get over his fear, he began filming himself trying out new recipes and posting them on YouTube. Crazy? Maybe, but now he has a successful YouTube channel, his own cookbook and endorsements from celebrity chefs!
AMERICAN ACTOR: JONNY DEPP
When your job involves you being looked at all day long, how can you be shy? Yet Jonny Depp has battled shyness and nerves his whole life in order to pursue a career as an actor. In fact, like Robert Pattinson, lots of actors say they’re actually quite shy and insecure.
AMERICAN-CHINESE DRESSMAKER: VERA WANG
What do Hilary Duff, Kim Kardashian, Chelsea Clinton and Alicia Keys all have in common? They all got married wearing Vera Wang wedding dresses! But Vera was already 40 before she started designing clothes. If only she had the Diamond to reassure her how creative she is…
IVORIAN FOOTBALLER: DIDIER DROGBA
Professional footballer, Didier Drogba, 36, was already 21 when he signed his first professional football contract – which is much later than most footballers. The Chelsea FC striker is from the Ivory Coast and says he had a complicated family life, which meant he didn’t start training as a pro footballer until much later.
