Gabrielle Appiah who lives in Bethnal Green became a Youth
Ambassador earlier this year. Here she tells us
how she’s been getting on in her new role:
“I have been the Youth Ambassador for Approach
Neighbourhood since July.
It has been very exciting to be involved. So
far I have organised an Olympics party in my area which was great
way to bring the community together. I have also designed artwork
for a mural as part of the Youth Panel’s ‘Bling my Hood’ project.
During the summer holiday I volunteered to help with the Family
Sports day at Mile End Leisure Centre where I had to use my
communications and influencing skills to gather a group to take
part in the Zumba class - it was really fun as I participated
I have also met my local Housing Officer and
Neighbourhood Engagement Officer to discuss ideas for a green area
in my neighbourhood. I became an Ambassador because I want to work
with all people in my area and be a bridge between my community and
Tower Hamlets Homes. Being a Youth Ambassador has already given me
lots of experience - I feel now I am able to provide a voice for
others and be heard.”
