As an alumnus of the Youth Sport Trust, Ben had some inspiring words for their new graduates facing the uncertainty of life after university. 

"There are endless possibilities and you’ve got a chance to get out there, strive for the things you want to do and hopefully have a really great time doing it. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something or that you’ve got to be realistic about your ambitions — unless you’re talking about being better than Messi at footy and you can’t kick a ball 5 yards — but do your best, keep pushing, and probably above all, be yourself."
