Vicky - Hey guys! My name is Vicky. I’m in year 11. I spend a lot of my time blasting music and painting on my bedroom floor as well as reading/writing in my free time. I’m very passionate about speaking up for people who don’t have the opportunity to speak for themselves and strive to be a ‘safe space’ for everyone around me. I wanted to be a consultant so that I could be more active in my community, helping people who usually wouldn’t be considered. I wanted to make an impact in my community and thought the student voice committee would be the perfect place to start. I would like to have made at least one major change in my school or community and would love to make more friends across the consultants for this year.
