My hobbies

I run a group with some people of similar age in which we raise money to create support packages for underprivileged youth in Hastings. For that I am the Leader, which includes ensuring all money is correctly accounted for and distributed between our projects fairly. I organise meetings, for example our meeting in the Houses of Parliament and our meetings with the Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Hastings. We have also done advertising and got our group on local radio stations as well as in the local press.

I am passionate about coding and web-design and am learning more coding languages such as PHP and C# to help further develop my existing skills. I am also interested in learning foreign languages, I took GCSE Spanish and am trying to improve my fluency by talking to someone who recently has come to England for a year from Spain.
