"The work I am most proud of is the event which I organised at Mozfest. It took a lot of work but I enjoyed being able to see it all come together, with others taking part and generally having a good time at an event I ran.
By doing my Gold Arts Award I have learned to embrace different opportunities and explore the wider arts world. I have also learnt a lot about leadership which I will continue to apply to my job as a youth worker."
