World Merit Day with Malala and The Backpacker Intern


I’m very honoured that World Merit asked me to become the official Social Media Reporter during their global event on July 24th: World Merit Day. A day dedicated to inspiring positive change in local and global communities. A day with conferences, speakers, workshops and music. A day with the amazing Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old girl that survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban and works tirelessly to promote equal education rights for all young people. A day with speakers like TV presenter Katie Piper, former CEO of Amnesty International Jack Healey, Lord Hastings, the chair of the Hillsborough Family Support Group Margaret Aspinall and many more. A day where we ask the world one question: “What Matters?”.

I’m really looking forward to this. Can’t wait to hear Malala speak.

Please let me know if you’ll be attending the event, would be cool to meet up!
