Bio: 
I am an ambitious yet down to earth young man with a passion and goals to resolve any injustices in the world and change it for the better. For now, I want to gain knowledge and skills through working and living with different cultures and also bring out the best in me, which I am gradually seeing. As for long term goals, I don't yet know where my future might lay. However, the experiences that I take away from volunteering should hopefully help me find the right path. I have worked in several industries already with a wide range of people and, so far, I've learned that working the average 9-5 job like the average Joe is not how I want my life to pan out. I want to find something that wont bore me; something that I will be remembered for; something that makes a difference.
Volunteering Experience: 
Although I have previously worked in paid employment as a fundraiser on behalf of Save the Children, the only 'proper' volunteer experiences I had were on the International Citizen Service. This program, of which I was placed in Chimanimani district, Manicaland, Zimbabwe, was with Restless Development. The program centered around peer education focusing on in-school-youths (10-18+) and out-of-school-youths of all ages. Topics covered included sexual and reproductive health and rights as well as livelihoods. During my stay I facilitated many, many sessions and a couple of awareness campaigns and also picked up a bit of the local language.
Education: 
7 GCSE's grade C and above. 3 BTEC Diplomas. several engineering qualifications.
Occupation: 
Unemployed
Other Skills: 
Organisation/ Time Keeping
Communication (Verbal & Written)
Friendly and professional approach
