Project Description

Athika Ahmed

Age 17 , Wales

Social action gives me the courage and confidence to fight for causes I believe in, such as tackling discrimination and improving awareness of mental health issues.

I’m currently a sixth form representative on our school’s equality and diversity forum. This helps to ensure that young people who have dealt with discrimination, whether it’s related to sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia or disability, have a safe space to talk and be heard.

I’m also a member of Cardiff and Vale Health Youth Board, where I advocate for better mental health awareness.

Social action constantly inspires me to do more, give more and achieve more.
