Project Description

Hana Mohamud

Age 17, England

I have always felt a need to go out and create change, from fundraisers to local public speaking within my community. However, it wasn’t until I first got into social action through NCS, where we went out and renovated a local pocket park, that I joined with likeminded individuals to collectively put pressure on change makers to address young people.

As a DofE youth ambassador I have also protested for refugees, advocated for my local community, carried out litter picking for a rotary club so they could open their doors a little sooner and provided food boxes for struggling families during Covid. I am also involved in a range of groups including climate change movements, Black Lives Matter, Palestinian movements and gender inequality movements. I want to continue pushing for social change and tacking these topics step-by-step.
