Youth Worker (Sports)
I have been a local harrow resident for most of my life and started attending Ignite Youth sessions over 12 years ago. The guidance of my sports coaches and youth workers was influential in fuelling my passion to spark change in young people’s lives, particularly those at risk. I believe using sport to transform the lives of young people by providing them with career changing opportunities or a safe place to play sports with friends. Working with small groups and one to one mentoring provides an opportunity to help young people who are particularly at risk overcome barriers and reach their full potential. In my spare time I run a football academy with the aim of showcasing local talented players by competing in a league frequently attended by scouts from professional clubs.
