Age 17, Bathgate
I took over the school book club when I was 12 and opened it to all year groups, genders and abilities. I had children join who were transgender, or autistic, or other individuals who didn’t fit into social norms, who saw the school book club as a safe place.
I then went on to do lots of social action particularly with Jack’s Den, including fundraising with stillborn charities and cancer charities. I also now buddy younger year groups transitioning to high school to give them extra help.
