London/Oxford

I am a first year undergraduate student, studying Development Economics at SOAS. I am passionate about raising money and awareness for charities. I first discovered Elephant Branded on ASOS Marketplace around 2013. I fell in love with your ethos: the simple yet necessary idea of providing educational equipment to support children in school. It is one that I can fully get behind.

I have recently completed a charity apprenticeship run by Child.org. Part of this course involved visiting and supporting several projects in Kisumu, Kenya. This allowed me to see first hand the necessity of projects like this.

Oxfam is another organisation that I support. Last summer, I also had the opportunity to represent them in their festival shop at Glastonbury and Bestival. For the past two years I have also volunteered regularly in my local Oxfam bookshop.
