Who Am I?
Freddie Pearson is a 21 Year Old British Actor, Model and Activist from South London; a former international sportsman, Tedx speaker and wellness entrepreneur. Freddie built up a large Instagram following throughout his modelling career and uses his platform to support mental health in young people, while also offering fitness advice as an escape or pursuit for others.
While at the University of Manchester, where Freddie is a Business Student, he began to suffer with his mental health; struggling with depression and falling into a mental rut, which led to isolating himself from the outside world. Realising that he needed help, he sought advice from a number of professionals while also developing an interest in self-development, fitness, mental wellness and discovering a passion for helping others.
Playing international sport and working in the modelling industry enlightened Freddie in the power of failure and rejection; how rejection, although originally painful and disheartening, can be the most powerful motivator, humbling teacher and invaluable education there is. Through exercise, modelling, writing blogs and openly discussing the challenges he has faced, he hopes to use this website to educate, inspire and help other people.
The start of January 2021 saw Pearson support Olympic Gold Medalist Luke Campbell ahead of his Ryan Garcia fight with a powerful monologue premiering on the DAZN network. Freddie made his television debut to an audience of 2.5 million viewers the morning of Captain Tom's funeral with a powerful emotive tribute entitled 'We Salute You'.
Continuing his campaigning efforts, the 21 year old joined England Rugby Star Maro Itoje on his Digital Divide campaign and regularly features on platform UNIDAYS as the voice of the student generation. Freddie can be seen and heard across major platforms including Global Citizen, The Times and Kiss FM as well as his own online platform with over 125,000 followers.
