Age 19, England
My first social action was mentoring students in art lessons. Through the National Citizen Service (NCS) I developed skills and went on to set up a mental health campaign. On the NCS local youth board I helped create a community event raising awareness around refugees. I worked with the ‘Fixers’ to create a game for children showing you can pursue arts subjects with success.
I am proud people say my social action makes a difference. My projects at university include running a mental health campaign on match day at Stoke City Football Club, volunteering with the Rainbows, and mentoring primary school children.
