Social action is incredibly important because you’re not just creating a platform for yourself, but for all young people, including those without a voice.
After working with the Trafford Youth Cabinet, I became involved with the National Citizen Service Regional Youth Board and will be a graduate mentor on their summer programme.
Currently, I’m a mental health advocate for Youth Mental Health Matters and have supported Plan International’s campaign against street harassment and their Menstrual Hygiene Day event.
I love how social action creates a chain reaction. It all starts with a conversation and you never know where it’s going to lead.
