Rebecca has offered the following advice to her younger self:

Rebecca Adlington, OBE says:

"I have no regrets in anything I've done, but I'd tell my younger self to not
let people I don't know influence the important decisions I make in my life or
affect the way I feel about myself"

Paula Llewellyn, Head of Direct Marketing Legal & General Insurance

"Looking back it's all too easy to think about what you could have or should
have done differently in life. We hope to help people realise that making the
right decisions today, could help make life better. Nobody can predict what is
going to happen, but taking small steps to safeguard yours and your family's
future is a simple responsibility we can all share."
