Lucy Aur Keeling
Age 19, Wales
Coming from an underprivileged background I want to ensure the next generation achieve everything they want and discover opportunities they never knew existed. I got through hard times and can help others realise they can too.
My social action has included volunteering in a local school with children as young as six to discuss their dreams and worries, helping teenagers with learning difficulties to complete their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Awards, coaching primary school children in Maths, joining a residential trip, and charity runs. I am also Regional Youth Ambassador for Duke of Edinburgh. From university I visit my secondary school when I can, to raise awareness for mental health online.
