Alana Kristi Balicdang, 21, a volunteer in the Westminster diocese, inspired a whole school to take action on the Thirst for change campaign. There are nine days to go before we hand your action cards to Prime Minister David Cameron – there’s still time to get involved and inspire others like Alana did!
Every decision I make, including doing voluntary work, is rooted in my faith. I was raised by my grandparents, who are religious people. Since I was a child, I saw them practice their faith by doing public service.
They would always quote this saying from the Bible: ‘Faith without works is dead.’ That saying was instilled into me. Without my faith, I would be nothing; I wouldn’t be doing this. It’s my guide.
