Age 18, Nottingham
When I was 16, I organised social action projects in my area to engage young people with Human Rights work, particularly Gender Equality. The National Council of Women spotted my social action initiatives and invited me to discuss how to get more young people involved in social action. I was then invited to become their first ever Youth Representative.
My work now involves visiting schools and delivering speeches about how pupils can be involved in social action, as well as helping to organise seminars, conferences and events around the country where young people can meet to debate and discuss issues which affect them.
