Sports star and pundit, motivational coach, TV personality and overall goal-setter, Anna Geary is one to watch.

Janice Butler chats to the Cork native about teaching herself to be confident, empowering young girls and her TV ambitions.

Get a sneak peek of the RTÉ Guide interview below where Anna explains why she joined Dancing with the Stars.

"What I wanted to show people – and especially young girls – is that you can be extremely competitive and focused but not ruthless.

"I also wanted people to see another side of me; I think they got to see a softer side
and probably a more vulnerable side. Your real self comes out when you’re in that kind of environment."
