He started volunteering when he was 8 years old on a local farm that was struggling to stay open. He's now 15 years of age. That's 7 years of labouring on a farm during his free time and school holidays for nothing. This has given him communication, teamwork and confidence skills. It's also earned him a lot of respect in our local community. For instance, he's taken a leading role in the local performing arts Centre. Which has raise lots of money for charity. Meaning he could help other young people achieve what they want to achieve and help them meet their goals. He really enjoyed working with young people and the difference it made to their lives. So he volunteered at a local scouting group, which enabled him to teach young people practical skills and also social and communication skills.
In the future he hopes to get as many young people involved in our local community and help them build their personal characteristics and inspire them to never look back and always try their hardest.
Oliver deservers to carry the Olympic flame because he always seems to be their for everyone in the community. No matter their age, race, or gender. He's always been volunteering for something and trying to improve the lives of others.
