Yu-Lei Tan

Age 20, Scotland

I was nine when I started social action. I did this with my family, supporting the local Foodbank by asking shoppers to buy and donate items to it. Being exposed to volunteering at a young age taught me humility and compassion, and I did more volunteering for the Foodbank at school.

I am also involved with the NHS Scotland Youth Steering Group for Digital Health Technology, the Scottish Government Digital Resilience Youth Steering Group, and was involved in the 5 (Digital) Rights Summit 2018.

I will use my platform as a Year of Young People 2018 Ambassador to promote the #iwill campaign.
