The Olympics 2012 will reflect the diversity and cultural wealth of the UK; I believe Amandeep is an ideal ambassador for our country, embodying the inspirational qualities sought after in a Torchbearer. Overcoming a confidence shattering stammer Amandeep, a youth member of the British Council, has gone on to deliver presentations to audiences across the country regarding globalisation and urging our leaders of tomorrow to become diverse through learning languages. He has also set up the Youth Renewable Energy Society, stressing the importance of protecting our planet. Fluent in numerous dance forms Amandeep taught the art of Bhangra to Chinese students and performed to Chinese Government officials in 2010 as a Global Fellow and also gained a diploma from Beijing Normal University. His benevolent nature has seen Amandeep fundraise over £8,000 - most recently running the London marathon despite suffering from ITB and his next endeavour for June 2012 aims to raise over £10,000 for slums in India. However, it is not the fact that Amandeep is fluent in six languages nor that he regularly gave up his free time to coach his local football team why I respect him so much. No, the most commendable attribute is the humble and selfless nature of this boy who inspires people to become the change they want to see in the world, to branch out of their comfort zone and instils the belief in all who meet him that ordinary people can indeed achieve extraordinary things.
