It was a pleasure to be awarded one of JCI UK’s Ten Outstanding Young Persons of 2018 recently. The awards event, which was celebrated at JCI’s UK national convention was held in November and aims to award inspiring individuals across the U.K.
Winning this award is less about what it means to me, but more about showing other young people that they can win one too. Growing up in a working class area, with little emphasis on business at school, it’s hard to think I would ever win an award like this.
I just hope that other young people see this, and think they can do it too.
