"Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."

Aged 18 I travelled around Central America and East Asia and for the first time I saw people living in extreme poverty. My eyes were opened wide to the harsh realities of this world, and I couldn’t ignore what I had seen. After graduating, I founded my award-winning travel blog the well travelled postcard, to inspire people to travel, explore and learn about this beautiful world. I write about travel experiences and use my blog as a platform to raise awareness about the amazing work of various NGOs, the One Young World movement and important issues such as children’s human rights. Having volunteered with human rights and health charities, and through attending One Young World 2013 in Johannesburg, I became a Digital Ambassador for the children’s charity Plan UK, which aims to transform the lives of the world’s poorest children across Asia, Africa and Latin America. I hope to motivate young people to take positive action on these issues, and I hope to influence and inspire generations to come!
