Queen Anne Room – Central
Presenter – Jo Brand, Comedian

“If you have a dream, you have to at least have a go at it because you never know what will happen. I didn’t really have what was required to be a comedian and I experienced some hideous times whilst trying, but it worked for me. So you must always have a go. I would like to congratulate you all on a wonderful achievement. You should be very proud of yourselves.”

Presenter – Aggie MacKenzie, TV Presenter

“There is a presumption that young people are constantly on their phones, sitting around not doing much but you are all shining examples disproving that. You have put in 18 months hard graft while you’ve had lots of others things going on in your lives, so well done with what you have achieved. Being open to opportunities and just going for it is the best thing you can do in life.”

Banquet Room – Northern Ireland
Presenter – Shane Logan, CEO of Ulster Rugby

“You are on a good, strong step to be the best you can be. Don’t stop the work you’ve started. What you have achieved is exceptional. You are in the top 2-3% of your times. Continue to be the best!
