Hiya everyone ^^
Erm, about me? I’m 16, ginger and proud ;P I was one of the original council members (yaaay) and i was so pleased to see it’d started again!
I’m really up for absolutely anything the council want to throw at me and am really geared up for all the fundraising activities and various plans we’ve got going on (s’all top secret, if you want to find out you’re going to have to join the council...*hint hint*)
But the main reason i joined, is probably more for the personal aspect, and the fact that being in a national CLAPA young people’s thing means i can contact so many people and get to know people. I’d like anyone else here to know that being a council member does not make us any less human (for example, I get upset easily, i’m happiest when i’m with my friends, i get self-conscious around anyone who’s not family, i love dancing, but not in public, music is pretty much my life, and schoolwork is currently killing me) xD, and honestly, this site and community is here so we can all talk to each other, so honestly guys, if any of you need to talk/rant/need some advice, i can’t promise you i’ll solve your problems, but i can promise that i’ll have probably been through them, and if not, i’m more than happy to talk through it and we can try’n help each other
hope to talk to everyone soon, it’d be great to see this community grow stronger, it was a brilliant idea, and I just want to get it more active!
(or ginge, y’know, i answer to both)
