Age 20, Greater London
My social action journey goes back a long way. It began when I was just 11 years old and elected to Kingston Youth Council. I went on to be elected as Member of Youth Parliament for Kingston aged 14, and then the London representative to the Procedures Group (PG) for the UK Youth Parliament. My main role for the PG is to inspire, support and train youth representatives from across London, and plan regional Conventions for over 100 young people. I also have responsibility for policies, procedures and national events, and have led on social media for the British Youth Council, as well as acting as media spokesperson on their campaigns.
I recently started my own business, Rhammified Media, but I still find time to volunteer – I’m currently involved in a new coalition of young people in London called One Big Community, which aims to reduce youth violence.
