Age 19, Wales
Social action has taught me to focus my anger about injustice by engaging productively with society, rather than allowing negativity to consume me.
I first experienced community campaigning when I became involved in Youth of Walsall’s ‘Real Knives, Real Lives’ campaign, which is one of the highlights of my social action so far.
Alongside this, I worked as a Senior Associate Mentor to support other young people on the NCS programme, and found that extremely inspiring.
I’m currently working to counteract racism on campus at my university, and am taking leadership skills training to help me achieve my future social action goals.
