Age 14, England
My desire to make Wednesbury a better place to live motivated me to take social action. I volunteer with Girlguiding, helping them to develop their skills, and have found that doing this develops my skills, too. I volunteer with the local Navy Cadets and help them to fundraise for charities.
I also help on a clean the streets programme to help make Wednesbury a ‘nicer’ place to live.
The skills I have gained from social action help me at school, both academically and in being more organised and open in class.
