Age 13, England
It frustrated me seeing decisions that affected my country, the world, being made by adults without young people’s wishes being considered. Then, aged 12, I read ‘Moxie’ by Jennifer Mathieu and realised that anyone can help people, including kids!
I am very involved with campaigning, including with Amnesty International and Global Citizen, and at school I have set up pupil-led groups such as the eco-team and have fundraised for charity. I am also a Kids Against Plastic Ambassador.
Social action has shown me I can do anything I want – I don’t need adults to do it for me.
