Local Charities Day – Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport – Patron
The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport hosts charity events every year in December that help drive growth, enrich lives and promote Britain abroad. Since 2016, I have attended these events promoting local affiliated charities. For each event, I have recorded a piece of content that is shared with the attendees. These events are extremely close to my heart, as it is a gentle reminder that it is our duty and responsibility to care for one another.

The Victora and Albert Museum, otherwise known as the V&A Museum in South Kensington is passionate about championing creativity for children and young people alike. The museum is the world’s largest museum of applied arts, decorative arts and design, housing a collection of 2.27 million objects. The museum hosts various events all year round promoting a wide range of relevant topics. In 2022, I became an ambassador and guest speaker for the V&A Museum and was invited to a panel discussion which delved into why children and young people should be celebrated as creatives and how they can find their creative voices.
