Age 18, Northern Ireland
My social action has enabled me to get a part-time job as a care assistant in a local care home.
I started volunteering with the British Heart Foundation to give something back after their support when my Grandpa had a heart attack.
As a ward volunteer on an elderly mental health ward I found communicating with a younger person keeps patients in touch with society.
I completed the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme and we organised a colour run to raise money for the MS Society, and do social action being on the NCS Northern Ireland regional youth board.
