Age 16, England
My geography teacher inspired me to get involved with social action as I cared about the environment and wanted to take action to protect it. I started by picking up litter along the River Thames with friends. From there I was inspired to do more.
I have developed my leadership skills through an ambassador programme for youth voice and became an Action for Conservation Ambassador.
My social action has shown me I really can make a difference and that young people can change things for the better. I’m proud that my work has inspired some friends to start volunteering.
