I want to give something back by helping to raise awareness and by getting involved in fundraising
I had a cochlear implant when I was two years old to enable me to hear.
Meningitis Now have helped us as a family a lot since then and so I want to give something back by helping to raise awareness and by getting involved in fundraising.
I want to raise awareness in my school and local community about the signs and symptoms and feel that I can represent the deaf community, specifically those with cochlear implants like me.
I am looking forward to helping to raise funds, by making cakes and selling them in school, and helping by attending events organised by Meningitis Now in my area.
Being a Young Ambassador gives me the opportunity to raise awareness of the disease and help raise vital funds to help more families.
