Story

Every time one turns on the news, or picks up a newspaper there is sure to be at least one story of political indifference or economic struggle and so much more that isn't so pleasant to think about. The world news becomes even more devastating to read, there are more conflicts and unresolved crisis leaving communities in turmoil. Indeed, there are problems to be faced and dealt with here in our own country, and never will I cease to be an active individual in my community for the betterment of myself and my neighbours. That being said, I also cannot turn my heart away from the thousands of vulnerable people in the world, in countries that are far less fortunate than the UK. People who deserve just as much happiness in their life as I do mine, and if I am able to assist somebody in the pursuit of their happiness by realising they have a great talent and potential to be what their mind imagines, then of course, I will go above and beyond to make it so. International Service have been doing this since 1953. A huge flood devastated the coast of Holland, and they provided relief. For years they have provided hope in the most destitute of areas, and I believe they have a great deal to teach me. That is why I am ready to take on their work in the North of Ghana which has suffered from both an economic and social decline. I will remind the women of the community that they have political rights that will protect them through their endeavours. I will make it a personal responsibility that disabled people are not excluded from society or deemed to be anything less than human. I will encourage young people to stay in education and flourish. I will and I want to do all of this and break the cycle of poverty and inequality. Come this April, I will be leaving for Ghana. Till then, I will fundraise so that the money can be invested back into International Citizen Service, the charity which has given me this great opportunity. There will be a lot to get involved with, stay tuned!
