Alex admits straight away that as a kid, she was always a tomboy favouring her brothers tracksuit bottom hand me downs to the dresses her mum would get her. 

Alex lived on an estate with 8 or 9 boys as her closest friends. Playing football with them most days, on one Friday evening they said they were going to the local cricket club. Alex asked her mum if she could go, to which the answer was, please not another sport you want to play

Convinced by the fact that the bar would be open, that’s where Alex’s career in cricket began at Read Cricket Club in Burnley. 

For those that aren’t familiar with the series, I’ve decided to do a take on ‘Humans of New York’ but for people who call Manchester home. 

Bee More MCR will try and tell the story of this incredible city and all the people who contribute to it being the fastest growing city in Europe. 

So how does this work? I will get each person to tell me their story in their own words of how they got to where they are today. I will share that sto...

I don’t know how to start this piece without saying Kyle Walker, but not that one. So I won’t...

The namesake of the current Manchester City right back, Kyle, is one of those guys that you just can’t not get along with. One of THE genuinely funny, die hard Man City fans around.

Based in Media City, the lad from Fallowfield puts on what can only be described as a daily comedy show across his social media channels, from talking all things football to ripping apart the cast of Love Island.

His 'same meme - multiple captions', is a personal favourite of mine, as well as the Uber rating and feedback videos he does, while still riding in the back of the Uber he’s reviewing…

It’s not been an easy journey to get to where he is today, but I genuinely think this is just the beginning for him.

Sam started doing gymnastics when she was only 6 years old, so she was always active from an early age, just more from a sports perspective. She carried the gymnastics on until she was 24 when a snapped achilles meant it was probably time to stop doing back flips. 

Sam admits that after this injury, being British champion at 14 years old to then almost not having an identity again was tough.

Sam was originally from Crewe, not going to university meant she got a job in a call centre and was looking to start out on a new path. Although not what she wanted to do forever, this job really taught her a lot. Especially resilience.

Better late than never as I think I interviewed these guys when it didn’t go dark at 16.00. I promise I will get quicker at turning these around as I genuinely have some belters lined up that I can’t wait to share.

I still can’t believe that these two guys managed to secure a deal with Harvey Nichols with no product, no manufacturing capability, but with just a brand name, a concept and a passion.

They say never go into business with your friends, but I genuinely think Liam and Mark prove that that’s not always the case. With Amy absolutely crushing the marketing side of the business, I can’t wait to see how far they can take this gin.

Finally had the chance to sit down with the guys from Manchester Young Professionals! Like most of the interviews I’ve done, I can always find similarities in the situation i’m in, with the people i’m interviewing. This has never been truer than with these two. (Andrew and Rich) 

Two of the nicest, down to earth, hard working lads you will meet in Manchester, along with the help of a few key individuals and some amazing sponsors/partners, they have turned something from nothing into the largest network of young professionals in Manchester.
