I started my Stonewall journey fresh out of college and not knowing what I wanted to do with my life. I had been volunteering in my local community and wanted to get involved with other projects where I could make a difference.
Being a Stonewall Young Campaigner has been such a valuable and rewarding experience for me. I’ve been volunteering with Stonewall for a few years now, getting involved with the Talent programme (now Young Leaders programme) and Youth Volunteering programme.
Originally I never saw being bisexual as a thing to be proud of, or a thing that mattered. But working with Stonewall has helped to show me that I can help make the world a better place through being a positive role model for others. Through all of the things I’ve been a part of, I’ve been able to not only recognise my skillset and the things that I’m truly passionate about but also find out how and why being an active part of a cause close to my heart can change lives, including my own.
With their help, I’ve managed to overcome fears of public speaking, expand my creativity, and realise my passion for making our society a better place, amongst other amazing qualities I’ve developed as part of the Stonewall family. As a result, I found my calling for campaigning and am currently doing a Creative Advertising degree at university. I’ve always wanted to be that positive influence in the world and now, I plan to be.
