Informationen zum Autor Leon Rolle aka Locksmith, originally from Hackney in East London, is an established musician and DJ, recognized as a member of MOBO and Brit award winning UK four-piece Rudimental. He has a huge passion for sport, health and fitness. Even when he signed to Black Butter Records with Rudimental in 2011, he still managed to find time to play semi-pro football. He lives in London. Derek Owusu is a writer, poet and podcaster from north London. He discovered his passion for literature at the age of twenty-three while studying exercise science at university. Unable to afford a change of degree, Derek began reading voraciously and sneaking into English Literature lectures at the University of Manchester. Derek edited and contributed to Safe: On Black British Men Reclaiming Space . That Reminds Me, his first solo work, won the Desmond Elliott Prize 2020. He lives in London. Klappentext Leon "Locksmith" Rolle is one-quarter of the phenomenally successful band Rudimental. In this book, he shares his aspirational story. With chapters on mindset, self-belief and confidence, Leon encourages you to find balance and happiness, no matter what life throws at you. Leon grew up in Hackney, where he played semi-professional football and went on to form Rudimental with three childhood friends. He says: "Things weren¿t always easy for me growing up, and I made a lot of mistakes. But I don¿t regret any of it, because everything that¿s happened has made me Locksmith, and that makes me proud. I want you to be proud of yourself too. You have the power to be great, and successes, mistakes and failures are all just a part of life. It's the journey that counts, because that's what makes you who you are." Let Leon's story inspire you to embrace life and fulfil your incredible potential.
