Reason for nomination:
Ellie deserves to be seen because she has a huge passion for equality and social justice. From a young age, Ellie initiated fundraisers at her school to raise money to send young girls to school in Ghana. Alongside this, she introduced a long standing partnership with The Rosie May Foundation at her next school which raises money to pay for safe transport to school for girls in Sri Lanka. Ellie also helped initiate diversity campaigns in her school for LGBTQIA+ and ethnic minorities, she made 150 essentials bags for the homeless, took part in toy collections for inner city schools & voluntarily spent a day serving underprivileged kids a Christmas meal.
On top of all of this, Ellie volunteered as a coach in her spare time for Nottingham Forest in the Community.
Ellie is the Her Game Too Ambassador for Nottingham Forest, where she works with the club to create a women’s supporters’ club.
Despite only being 20 years old, Ellie has achieved so much and made such a positive impact on the community already. She is such an amazing human and worthy of this nomination!
