My work mainly focuses on the challenge event and community side of fundraising at Become. This involves recruiting people to take part in runs and other challenges, looking after both individual fundraisers and community groups and making sure they know how appreciated they are!
Can you say a bit about your past experience and qualifications?
Since graduating with a Master’s from the University of Leeds in 2019, I have volunteered and worked in various fundraising roles, including my last role as Fundraising Intern at the British Youth Council. I developed a passion for advocating for the rights of young people whilst volunteering in Greece where I worked with teenagers and unaccompanied minors living in refugee camps, and built upon this whilst at the British Youth Council. Now, at Become, I’m excited about the fact that I can combine my fundraising skills with my determination to create a better and more equal world for care-experienced young people.
What do you like about working at Become?
I love how much I learn from my colleagues every day. Their knowledge, passion for change and desire to support the young care-experienced people that we work with is inspiring.
What drives you?
The need to challenge inequality and injustice. I am also driven by seeing the incredible impact of Become’s work on young people and the wider care system and recognising that myself and my team helped to make that change possible.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
I enjoy reading, cooking, going to the cinema, listening to and seeing live music and spending valuable time with friends.
