Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? I wanted to push myself to go outside of my comfort zone as I have always got quite nervous speaking in front of large groups of people. I also wanted to gain a better understanding of Testicular Cancer as it is something that I have not previously fully understood.
What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? The satisfaction of finishing a talk knowing that a few more people are clued up on TC. Also, the smiles on peoples that you see when driving the ambassador cars. 
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? Just be confident in putting yourself out there, whether that be contacting schools, or getting your gear off on Instagram!

Liverpool - Bobby Barber
Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? I wanted to make a real difference to people’s lives particular mens health and the discussion around topics like testicular cancer. But also, how having these conversations and getting the message across, people and society can improve and grow. It’s a topic very close to my heart and I want to be an ally in helping men young and old break down barriers and stigmas around mens health and testicular cancer. So, I can be there, listen, understand and offer help for men as I grow up.
What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? Well, it has to be the joy on people’s faces as the car drives around the streets of Liverpool! The direction and pace in which the foundation is growing is hugely exciting for everyone! Seeing the OddBalls pants, hats, towels at rugby matches and across social media. I really enjoy being an OddBalls ambassador it’s exciting and rewarding to receive messages how we’ve helped people in different ways.
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? I’ve learnt a lot about myself being an ambassador so far, the role has presented new challenges for me personally. Having the freedom to make the role our own is great. Being creative in how I communicate with people, finding different ways to get through to people. I’ve learnt communication and networking skills, gaining confidence in public speaking, talking to people from different backgrounds. Dealing with difficult questions and issues, teamwork in our pods and the ambassadors as a whole team, meeting deadlines and even some IT skills! Being an OddBalls Ambassador isn’t a job or chore it’s a lifestyle and I think people really see that in our ambassadors.

east anglia - summer kennedy
Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? I got involved with the Oddballs foundation after being sent the job advert, doing my research about the company, and seeing what a worthwhile cause it is. Knowing two very close people in my life who have been treated for testicular cancer meant that I have seen first-hand the profound impact it can have on someone’s life; so, to me, the more people that are aware of the condition and how to get on top of it early, the better!
What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? The most exciting part about being an ambassador is being able to go out into my local (and sometimes not so local) area and raise awareness of testicular cancer in schools, colleges, and businesses. I love giving the awareness talks and seeing people engage with the Oddballs message. It’s also very exciting to know that what we are doing as ambassadors has a genuine positive, important impact on many people’s lives.
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? I have learned how to be confident even when talking about typically ‘taboo’ subjects and how to break down that stigma! It can be daunting walking into a hall filled with people, knowing that you’re going to be talking about balls but learning to channel nerves into enthusiasm and positivity helps me not only as an ambassador but in so many other areas of my life.

Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? I found out about OddBalls through a few of my friends at my university wearing the hats. I saw the position come up and it looked like a great opportunity to help spread awareness in a new city.
What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? I love meeting new people, visiting new places and when there’s lots of engagement during talks it is very rewarding. Also, receiving messages from individuals that are grateful for the social media awareness, seeing the guides up somewhere or them learning something from a talk and having the balls to go to the doctor- seeing the difference we are making is amazing!
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? Lots of people don’t know about testicular cancer, especially in rural areas and different communities, they aren’t aware of the need to check themselves which is why there are serious cases of testicular cancer each year.  I have found that many guys get embarrassed to talk about their balls but approaching the conversation with confidence and tailoring to different audiences has shown how much we can open people’s eyes on the topic; It is great when people then go out of their way to tell everyone they know, covering more and more males across the country and getting that message out there!

Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation?

I enjoy bringing up conversations and topics that aren't normally talked about and that is exactly what Oddballs Foundation does!
What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? Talking to so many different groups of people and making those who don't normally think about their physical and mental health start to having those conversations.
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? How to communicate effectively and professionally to different companies and members of the public.

oxford - rosie gow
Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? I got involved with The OddBalls Foundation because of the opportunity to have a direct effect on the lives of young men. The way that OddBalls deliver their message, in the most fun and light-hearted way, makes the topic of testicular cancer much more approachable and I’m really enjoying being part of the team that effectively gives young people everywhere the confidence to start that conversation, break the stigma and save lives!
What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? The most exciting part about being an ambassador is probably the feeling that you know you’re making a difference. I’ve had boys come up to me and say ‘I checked my balls last night because of you Rosie’ – and believe me that’s a cool feeling.
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? So far, as an ambassador, I have learned lots, and am still very much learning! But one thing that’s really important for me is learning to be comfortable getting up in front of a large group of people and saying what I have to say. It’s such an important topic and I love talking about it anywhere else, the petrol station, on the street, but getting up in front of so many people is something I am learning to love.

bristol - matt hackney
Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? From seeing what great work The OddBalls Foundation does, and how many people's lives they positively affect, I wanted to get involved with such a great cause.
What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? For me, going into schools and giving them talks about the work we do and how to look for warning signs of TC. The reaction I've had so far has been great. Working with the foundation is such a fulfilling thing to do.
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? I didn't truly realise how much of an impact the Foundation made on people until I started working with the Foundation. The amount of positive feedback already has been great, and this will only get better with more school talks, and more CYGs being put up around the UK and Ireland.

cambridge - tom allen
Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? I’ve always been really keen on charity work through fundraising and volunteering opportunities, but I had never had the opportunity to do something more long-term. When I saw the advert to apply for University Ambassador for the Oddballs Foundation, I saw an opportunity to really get stuck in for a whole year and make a genuine difference in the fight against cancer.
What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? The interactions you get to have with people. Be it with 200 school children or a brief conversation with a pub landlord when putting up a CYG, seeing that so many of the public are just as enthusiastic about fighting cancer as we are at OddBalls really forms a connection with these people. 
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? So much about testicular cancer. The facts and figures, and the stories of people affected by it. Also, I’ve learnt that everyone involved in the wider community of cancer fighting charities shares a mutual respect for the work we all do. It brings a nice sense of community.

Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? Multiple of the male role models in my life such as my grandad were diagnosed with several forms of cancer.

What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? Being able to make a difference in so many young men’s lives while being able to share a smile about such an important issue!
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? Through being able to meet so many different people I have seen how cancer can directly and indirectly impact people’s lives and thus why it’s so important to become educated on all types of cancers to be able to support our loved ones.

manchester - olivia graham
Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? In January 2021, a close family friend was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer. He was back for Christmas from America, where he is at University on a Sports Scholarship. The news of the Cancer was devastating, He is young, fit, and healthy so a Cancer diagnosis just felt like it couldn’t be true. After an incredibly tough year, including operations and numerous rounds of Chemotherapy, He is now thankfully back to full health completing his studies in America. The diagnosis was a huge shock, and it had never crossed my mind that someone so close to me, and so young, could have their life put on pause by Cancer.

I have followed OddBalls after my school bought some bobble hats, and a teacher explained what the Charity did. The Ambassador Programme really piqued my interest, so when the opportunity arose, I leapt at it. After seeing first-hand the impact of Testicular Cancer, it was something I felt compelled to do.
What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? The most exciting thing about being an ambassador is giving the talks! Whilst it can be slightly nerve-wracking beforehand, being able to connect with people, and educate them on Testicular Cancer, is a great experience- you are really making a difference in the community.
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? So far while being an ambassador, I have learnt to be much more confident, especially when approaching people to try and organise talks, or when going into restaurants and businesses to give them a Check Yourself Guide.

I’ve also learnt the importance of speaking clearly and coherently while giving talks, its particularly important when talking to larger groups. Making sure everyone can hear and understand what you are saying means more people are educated and aware.

Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? I got involved with The OddBalls Foundation as I saw it as a great way to promote a positive cause. The opportunity to spread awareness around testicular cancer and having the chance to help people was one that really excited me.
What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? The most exciting part of being an ambassador firstly is to continue to raise awareness but also that it challenges me to go into environments where I don’t know anyone and deliver a talk trying to break down the taboo and stigma surrounding testicular cancer.
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? So far, I’ve learned how engaged people are surrounding the topic, whether this be someone asking me questions about it after seeing me driving the OddBalls car or after I delivered my first talk to the University Rugby Club.

newcastle - jasmine langley
Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? I got involved with the foundation because I think it is such a unique charity that has such a meaningful impact on so many young men, really encouraging them to take their physical and mental health into their own hands, supporting themselves and others. I also liked the idea that, as a woman, I could also help to demonstrate the importance of everyone being educated and aware because testicular cancer can affect everyone’s life in some way or another, and often support from those closest to people is the trigger for action to be taken!
What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? I really enjoy the fact that we get to make the role entirely our own and have a part to play in starting this extremely important conversation with people and spreading the message as far and wide as possible! Hearing the feedback from schools and students has been so rewarding and seeing people engage with what you are telling them and leaving the conversation more informed than before is the best feeling ever! Also, the car is pretty cool, had to be said!
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? I have learned that if you have a genuine enthusiasm and a desire to spread a message then so much good can be done, even from the smallest things. I think making The OddBalls Foundation part of my everyday life has meant that wherever I am and whoever I’m with, the topic of testicular cancer is likely to come up in some form and so having these conversations regularly and with as many people as possible plants the seed in their head which will then grow into them reaching out and talking to their nearest and dearest about the topic. The hardest thing has been overcoming the stigma surrounding such an intimate issue, but once the conversation has been started, it can quickly gain momentum and end up reaching further and wider than I, myself, could ever reach!

Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? I got involved with The OddBalls Foundation because my brother was the Dublin University Ambassador last year, therefore, I got to see first-hand what a great brand OddBalls is and what a great cause they promote. After seeing him do it for the year I was eager to get involved myself and to drive the brightly coloured car everywhere raising awareness for testicular cancer. 

What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? The most exciting thing about being an ambassador for me is going into schools and raising awareness for a great cause while evoking important conversations here in Ireland. 

What have you learned so far being an ambassador? The main thing I learned about being an OddBalls ambassador is just how powerful the talks can be. The students are very attentive and take in as much information as possible which I loved to see.

imperial college london - tom fitzgerald
Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? Cancer effects everybody either indirectly or directly at some stage in their lives. Nobody is invincible to this horrendous disease. It is a rare opportunity where, as a student, you can make such a telling impact to fight this. Raising awareness is the first step and OddBalls provides you with a wonderful platform to do so which is unique in more ways than one. OddBalls and sport go hand in hand. Being able to get involved in giving back and getting involved with a charity that is so invested in sport was the ideal fit for me and why I wanted to become an ambassador for my second university.
What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? Personally, the most exciting part is the sheer buzz you get after delivering a talk. This is something you cannot comprehend until you go and deliver your first presentation. Seeing an audience who started off giggling at you, coming full circle to approaching you after the talk and thanking you for teaching them the various insights into testicular cancer and how they can raise awareness and checking themselves gives you a sense of fulfillment like no other. It may sound like a repeated line but it’s true! 
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? That it is okay not to be okay. If something is not right – speak up about it! This relates to all aspects of men’s health. Men have a shocking tendency to shy away from addressing their vulnerabilities. It is an indescribable weight off one’s shoulders once they speak up about a subject that’s affecting them and the support they receive. We need to do all we can to ensure this continues and more people start speaking up and checking themselves.

Why did you get involved with The OddBalls Foundation? The opportunity to become a University Ambassador for The OddBalls Foundation was a no brainier. Having the opportunity to be part of such a unique and uplifting group of young people, all with the same mission to save lives and share the OddBalls message is what initially caught my eye. I knew about the flashy designs and kits long before the ambassador role and have always been a firm believer in what OddBalls set out to achieve. So, when I became aware of the ambassador role, I grabbed it with both hands. 
What's the most exciting part about being an ambassador? Being an OddBalls University Ambassador opens so many conversations with everyone you meet - potentially life changing ones. Having the opportunity to save lives as a university student is something I am extremely proud of and excited about. This year I will be aiming to speak to thousands of young people about all things OddBalls, making them aware of the importance of the message we want to share.
What have you learned so far being an ambassador? I have learned that Testicular cancer does not discriminate and that sometimes the people you would least expect are heavily affected by the subject. Driving the OddBalls car ignites random conversations with so many people and normalising these conversations about how Testicular cancer can change lives, is what OddBalls is all about. One conversation that will always stick with me was with a 16-year-old lad, whose older brother had recently been diagnosed with testicular cancer. I have never seen someone his age speaks with so much passion and he was eternally grateful for the work we do at OddBalls. It is these short conversations that mean so much and can really help save and change lives.
