Jordan, aged 18 from Nottingham. Diana Champion Volunteer.
“After suffering from abuse as a child, as soon as I left my stepfather I promised myself that I would make a difference to the world that I lived in. I started at the age of sixteen by organising fundraising for my school. When I moved to college my confidence grew and so did my fundraising ability. Finding that I had a talent for photography I used this to campaign for fairtrade and raise money for charities. This eventually led to me getting a trip to Kenya, doing photography for a fairtrade company while being able to document the social divide. This gave me the chance to educate my college and Nottingham on fairtrade. The campaign is still going and growing every day.
I was absolutely delighted to receive my Princess Diana Award on behalf of Carlton Road Youth Centre for my contributions to children’s services.
When I was 18 years old, I worked as a volunteer youth worker in the evenings whilst studying at college.The youth centre which I work, is on the estate where I live, so I feel that it is important that people put things back into the community.
