Young Ambassador

Our Young Ambassador for this year is Rozanna Toomer who is sponsored by the Lions Club of Southampton Solent. 

Rozy attended the MD 105 Finals in Dudley over the weekend 19th to 21st February 2016. She represented the District extremely well but has not progressed any further in the competition. Rozy thanked the Lions Club of Southampton Solent and the District for giving her this exciting opportunity. We wish her every success in her future career.

My name is Rozy Toomer, I am 17 years old and studying A levels in Biology, Health and Social Care with extended project and Photography at Barton Peveril College in Eastleigh, Hampshire.  I have applied to University to study Midwifery next year.  My college work takes up many hours, but I feel that helping in my community is important and I gain valuable experience.    

I am an active member of the Scout Association and enjoy many activities such as camping, water sports, gliding and backwoods skills.  I have achieved my D of E Silver award and am working towards Gold.  I am also a Young Leader with the Cub Scout section helping younger children with scouting activities and running meetings. 

I have volunteered at Down To Earth Community Farm in Southampton for over 15 years.  I help care for many different animals, fund raise and assist with Learning Disabled groups and children’s holiday activities.
