Age 11, West Midlands
In May 2014, I started the Sport 4 Life UK Young Leaders project. It’s for young people aged 10-14 to lead a sports event in their community and raise money for a local charity, as well as volunteer with the organisation.
I helped organise a sports event and was in charge of helping people learn archery. I spent the whole day teaching other people and really enjoyed it. I decided to support an anti-knife crime charity because I have been in trouble with the police before and I sometimes have anger management problems, so it’s a cause that I really care about.
Through this project, I feel much more confident to take on new challenges and try things I’ve never done before.
