Hi Guys I’m Ellie Colquhoun, I’m 17 years old and I am at Carey Grammar School in Melbourne, Australia.

I have always been passionate about making a difference to the broader community; therefore becoming a Youth Ambassador for Mind Heart Connect will help me fulfill these hopes and interests. Travelling within Australia and internationally has enabled me to be exposed and in some cases confronted by, the living standards and circumstances endured.

At the moment I am studying the IB Diploma, and as a part of this programme it is required that I complete 150 hours of CAS hours, which are Creativity, Action, and Service hours. 50 Hours of each are required, so being a Youth Ambassador for Mind Heart Connect will open my horizons and also count towards these hours.

I look forward to working with others to make a difference, and specifically helping those who are suffering, or finding it tough.
