Age 17, England
Being involved with social action helps me appreciate that with determination and action I can achieve things beyond anything I had anticipated.
I started my social action in Primary school by supporting younger children in developing their skills. Since then, I have volunteered at environmental sites and community projects, including picking up litter around the River Cray with Thames 21, helping the course of the river and encouraging biodiversity. As an ambassador for Action For Conservation, including attending talks with DEFRA, I have developed my qualities of leadership and teamwork.
