Age 12, England
I took up social action helping with the Scouts from six years old. Motivated by my desire to help children who are less fortunate than myself, since then I have raised money for charities and also my school through various activities. These have included collecting shoes and washing cars. I also save and donate my pocket money to charities to plant trees and help the environment.
I am so glad my teachers and family inspired me to take social action – it is rewarding helping others, I have learnt a lot and I am now far more confident.
