Everyday heroes are people from our communities who have achieved success in their own areas of activity and who inspire us to do better.
The stories of these sixteen achievers will provide education, offer inspirati on and promote aspiration in an easy to read format for young readers everywhere.
What does it take to be a successful architect, lawyer, actuary, composer or inventor? What was the best advice ever given to one of the UK’s leading black medical consultants? These role models offer invaluable learning, not only about what it takes to succeed in their chosen careers, but also about their own journeys, their influences, and the life lessons they have learned along the way.
Complete with projects and exercises to help young people think about their own career aspirations, Everyday Heroes is an invaluable tool for schools, parents, youth groups and anyone involved in the career development of young people from ethnic minorities.

This is a very practical and engaging book that can be used across a very wide age group. I read the book over a couple of weekends with my daughter as a way of ensuring she has a very balanced and realistic perspective on role models. The stories are down to earth and very inspiring. I mentor young adults and this is certainly a practical and motivating read I will be recommending to them. The format is great and allows for numerous updates to ensure these Everyday Heroes remain relevant to further generations.
