A young Girlguiding member from Milton Keynes is encouraging others to make a positive difference in the community this year, after being appointed as a national ambassador for social action.
Emily Solloway, aged 18, is one of only 100 young people across the UK to be named as an #iwill Ambassador for national charity Step up to Serve.
Through her role, she wants to inspire more young people to take action for change in the local community and nationally through activities including volunteering, campaigning and fundraising.
Emily, who attends Milton Keynes College, was asked to become an #iwill Ambassador thanks to her community work, including running swimming lessons for children with learning difficulties and helping out at a local care home.
Her busy year of community work ahead includes volunteering as a leader at 1st Shenley Rainbow group.
Now Emily is calling on more young people to help others. To find out more, visit www.iwill.org.uk/
