A YOUNG Girlguiding member from Rednal is encouraging others to make a positive difference to the community following her appointment as national ambassador for social action.

Georgia Cartmell, 16, is just one of 100 young people across the UK to become 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.

Georgia is a member of the Northfield Division Senior Section and is studying for her A-levels at Colmers School and Sixth Form College.

She was asked to become an #iwill Ambassador thanks to her inspiring work with the community.

Georgia’s work includes leading over 40 peer education sessions with girls aged seven to 14 within Girlguiding on topical issues like bullying, self-esteem and leadership skills.

As the New Year gets underway, Georgia is calling on more young people to help others.

Her busy year of community work ahead also includes work with the 1st Rednal Rainbow group.

Georgia said: “There are lots of ways to get involved in social action.

“Don’t be afraid to ask at places like schools and youth groups if you need ideas. Try and get your friends involved too.”

From raising awareness about a cause close to their hearts to speaking out about an issue that matters to them – Girlguiding empowers girls across the UK to make the world a better place and make a positive impact in their community.
