I am 18 years old and taking a gap year. I have been volunteering for Citizens UK for 2 years a community leader. Last year due to my efforts I won the London Citizens Young Leader of the Year Award 2013. I was elected student president of Coulsdon College last year. I started up the Citizens UK Youth Leadership Team and I work as a junior organiser for Citizens UK. The CUKYLT is a team of young people working on a national youth unemployment campaign in the run up to the general election. I also spoke at TEDXCambridgeUniversity in March on the power of storytelling.
