When I was 16 living in a hostel – I was sitting around the christmas table with about 5 other vulnerable young people knowing that one day I would use my voice to share what really goes on, from a child’s voice.
I thought it would be to a room full of people from the charity NSPCC as they had helped us – to receive this award is a credit to all the judges who provided me the opportunity to have a voice. Silence does not prevent trauma, abuse or suicide – it only exacerbates it. Having a voice is important and as a speaker opening the conversation is my passion.
