Age 19, England – Greater London
Social engagement and volunteering with a myriad of charitable organisations has made me hungry for change, with an unstoppable drive to make a difference in my local community.
I’ve thrown my energy into a variety of social action causes. As a Young Women’s Trust Advisory Panellist, I’ve worked with the UK Government and lobbying groups to improve women’s prospects and employability. I’ve provided activities to tackle loneliness for The Together Project, and have mentored 5-11 year olds in under-achieving schools for City Year UK.
Social action has made me realise how much power we have to impact other people’s lives.
