ABOUT THE BELIEVE INITIATIVE

Many will encounter obstacles along their journey and some will consider giving up in a moment of adversity. During this critical adolescent time, it is important we talk about being resilient, believing in yourself and learning through our mistakes and obstacles. By showing young people that even Olympic athletes make mistakes and fall down, the Believe Initiative will exemplify what will happen when you focus on the process, persevere past the obstacles and continue to believe in yourself and your goals.

ABOUT SARAH WELLS

Having seen both success and heartbreak during her athletic career, Sarah feels especially passionate about overcoming obstacles as a hurdler. Despite a devastating stress fracture in her femur the year before the London 2012 Olympic games, Sarah overcame her injury and went on to compete for Canada, finishing as an Olympic semi-finalist. She continued her success at the 2015 Pan American games in Toronto finishing as a silver medallist in the 400m hurdles, only to be faced with heart break at the 2016 Olympic trials when she just missed qualifying for her second Canadian Olympic team after rushing back from a hamstring tear earlier in the year.

“Our society is constantly changing and requiring young people to adapt, so providing them the skills to cope early-on is essential. Hard work won’t always lead to success but being resilient, getting back up and believing you can do it, will always lead to another opportunity. The sooner we can help young people learn that, the more successful they will be, no matter what their goal is.”

"It has been quite the roller coaster ride, but after seeing the difference in my success and my ability to be resilient once I began to foster a belief in myself, I wanted to encourage others to do the same – that’s when the Believe Initiative was born."
