“S4TP gives young people responsibility and confidence. Listening to young people create solutions to the world’s Big problems makes me feel confident our future leadership but also encourages me to be more creative in how I solve environmental problems in my life.”

I work to understand how and why animals (including humans) make decisions. At the moment I work with people in Nepal to learn about how they use certain types of medicine (antibiotics). We discuss how these medicines work so that they can use them safely and share our learning in creative ways, such as in films, so that other communities can also use these medicines safely.

I love running, I have completed 6 marathons all over the world. I always take my trainers with me when I am travelling so I can go for a run in new places!
