I met Steph last year when we both took part in a 6 month exchange between London and India. I fell ill for the first 4 weeks in India and could only think about going home, Steph was always there trying to cheer me up and always looking out for me. She's become one of my best friends and by being there for me in India she made me see that I can do anything if I put my mind to it. I couldn't imagine having to do that without her there. Steph is very inspirational to me and a lot of her friends. She never gives up on anything and always has a smile on her face, I have never met a more positive person. Steph's done a lot for other people, she's raised a large amount of money for different charities by running marathons, organising events such as speed dating and so much more. Along with her church, Steph helped raise a large amount of money to fly over to Uganda to build accommodation for teachers and orphans who board at the school. Whilst at home she does cross community work doing acts of kindness for people who are less able, such as gardening and making food packages. She also works with the youth at her church. She feels community work is so important in her area because there is such a divide between protestants and catholics. She gives so much of her time to others, this opportunity would really mean the world to her and to know that she is appreciated. It would also mean so much to her family and friends to see her doing something that she could only dream of.
