After the suicide of a close family friend, Beder, in 2017, I first became aware of the importance of mental health.
In 2021, I began volunteering at the mental health charity “Beder,” founded by Beder’s family. This involves in-person volunteering, providing ideas, resources and service.
Beder was recently awarded the Points of Light award by the UK’s Prime Minister’s Office.
I now play a prominent role in my school community as a mental health ambassador and look out for my peers to ensure I can help in as many ways as possible.
I have given various assemblies and led in-class discussions for my peers (such as being invited by the psychology department to present on “aggression”).
Additionally, all proceeds from my book are donated to “Beder.”
