Name: Jennifer Bailey

Age: 11

Who am I?

 Jennifer is a great candidate for child ambassador as she is very confident and able to express her opinions and thoughts well. She is always looking to help others and we feel she would be more than capable of gathering other people’s opinions too and sharing them as she makes lots of different friends on the courses. Jennifer is part of the school council at her school so is used to providing feedback and being the voice for other children.

Name: Jasmine Dobbin

Age: 13

 

Who am I?

My strong points are Languages which mean I can easily pick up different cultures and could help people who don’t know English too well to be more comfortable and confident living here. Confidence, meaning I could speak out to a crowd about our beliefs and my creativity meaning I could contribute hugely in many projects and activities. I’m also apart of the (L)GBTQ+ And the Asian community, so I would know how it feels to wrongly stand out from the crowd, I know and believe I can help people of any race, religion, sexuality, age and gender, how to feel comfortable in their own skin and to feel confident, being proud to stand out of the crowd.
