Age 19, England
Hull is consistently portrayed negatively, limiting education and work opportunities and I am determined to change this. I started social action when I joined Hull Youth Council, campaigning on issues including racial and religious discrimination, transport, votes at 16, a more inclusive Curriculum for Life, and diversity among young people doing social action.
I am a former Member of UK Youth Parliament for Kingston Upon Hull, a member of the NHS Youth Forum and a Young Technical Advisor with the British Youth Council and the World Health Organisation. I have also campaigned with Headstart to prevent mental health conditions and suicide.
