I’m a huge believer that the work Meningitis Now does have the potential to change lives for the better
Meningitis Now have always been there for me when I’ve needed them; whether that was in the form of having someone to talk to in a bid to make sense of what had happened to me, offering me a service such as art therapy, or just allowing me to throw myself into fundraising and campaigning which gave me back an element of control in my life. Everything has all added up and has shaped me into the person I am today.
It’s this passion and desire to give to others what Meningitis Now has given me that drives me. I’m a huge believer that the work Meningitis Now does have the potential to change lives for the better. I know first-hand that the networks and life-long friendships formed through the opportunities offered by Meningitis Now can make all the difference.
I have had so many brilliant and diverse opportunities come from being a Young Ambassador, from speaking at a Parliamentary reception, to zip wiring off of tall buildings, to meeting with government officials in the Cabinet Office. It is a role I tell people about with pride.
I feel honoured to be able to volunteer as a Young Ambassador alongside some incredible people, to raise awareness, campaign, and ultimately to be a small part of the fight against meningitis.
