This decision is always up to you! You don’t need to do the media side of things, but if you would like to get more involved there are a range of things you could chose to do. Some people do interviews over the phone, some have spoken with journalists at our office, and some have even gone on TV to tell their story. It’s a personal choice.
If you would like to do an interview then Beam will offer you media training - this gives you some tips and tricks to help you be as confident and prepared as possible. It can also be really useful preparation for job interviews in the future. Speak to your Support Specialist if you want to know more and we’d be happy to talk to you about it.
