Age 13, Wales

I’ve been actively involved in promoting equality and campaigning for access to sports across all genders. It’s ridiculous that people still say: “You can’t do that because you’re a girl.” There are now girls’ rugby, cricket and football teams at school.

Next, I’m going to campaign for gender confident school uniform. I also want to get involved with mentoring younger children at my school who may need support with mental health issues. By doing this, I hope to help set others up for success and give them the tools they need to excel.
