Jake joined Eco-Talent as he was undecided about what he wanted to do with his future and was feeling a lot of pressure from his family. He joined Eco Talent to meet new people, gain skills and help him find direction. Naturally charismatic, creative and witty, Jake took on a leadership role on one of the social action projects: Go Vegan. He developed a very impactful project and had a huge amount of support. His growing confidence lead him to become an Our Bright Future Youth Forum member and show off his public speaking skills by sharing his journey. Now he has graduated from Eco Talent he has gone to college to study further.
‘A lot has changed within myself and my abilities. Currently, I am enrolled for Level 3 course.’
