I’m currently 17 years old studying at Seven Kings High School, East London, where I am Head Boy. I recently travelled to Chicago and Vermont in the USA as part of a UK-US youth dialogue programme which involves further developing leadership skills and allowing cultural emersion. I was lucky enough to have a public speaking training session with Kevin Lampe, who prepared President Obama for his keynote address to the 2004 democratic national convention.
I have also been part of a team that organised multiple Model United Nations conferences biannually for over 600 young people from around the world. I am passionate about the empowerment of young people and look forward to expressing this at TEDxYouthCroydon.
