I am a 21 year old environmental activist, speaker and presenter.
I first began to act on the climate and biodiversity crises the age of 13, when I became awake to the scale of the threats that our planet faced, and the impacts those could have on people. In the time since, I’ve worked on a huge variety of projects, and had opportunities that I never would have dreamt of when I started. Like organising an online concert featuring Olivia Rodrigo to raise money to protect threatened rainforest. Like visiting 10 Downing Street to discuss environmental policy, and setting up a giant light-projected Climate Clock in Glasgow to look down on world leaders ahead of COP26.
These have been extraordinary experiences that I will always be grateful for, but they have also given me a broad understanding of climate and biodiversity issues, and the many diverse and creative ways to create change.
Alongside all of this, I have had the privilege of acting as an advocate for the youth environmental movement on several occasions. I’ve spoken on the main plenary stage at COP26, at venues like the Royal Geographical Society and the QEII Centre, and in outlets such as Channel 4 News, The Guardian and The Independent.
I also really value the longstanding relationships I have with a variety of NGOs who I admire; especially supporting RSPB’s vital campaigning work, and helping Reserva: The Youth Land Trust empower young people to protect threatened habitats globally.
I have now graduated from studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, and am looking to work in climate policy, politics, law or system transitions.
