Bethan: I earned friends by being me

Bethan is 13-years-old and volunteers with children at a local play scheme.

Bethan decided to start volunteering when she was 11, as a way to gain more confidence in herself.

Her parents breaking up when she was younger had left her feeling withdrawn, shy, and she struggled to make friends or speak about her problems.

Bethan says volunteering has helped her become the best version of herself.
