Guildford Borough Council was delighted to appoint me as a Guildford Young Ambassador on Wednesday 2 March. The Mayor of Guildford, Nikki Nelson-Smith, and Leader of the Council, Paul Spooner, were impressed by my dedication and hard work, which was reflected in my outstanding performances in national and international kayaking events. Guildford’s Young Ambassadors are a group of inspirational young people who represent our borough at schools, youth groups and events. They are at the top of their game in business, sport, music or other activities or go the extra mile in volunteering to support their local community. I became the Council’s ninth Young Ambassador.
