Project Description

Isobel Cammish

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.
