Hello and welcome to my introductory blog!
My name is Samyak Jain. I was born in Delhi, India, but I’ve lived in Birmingham for most my life.
I’m in my first year at the University of Nottingham studying Pure Economics. Growing up I loved water sports so much that I decided to join school teams and become a voluntary swimming teacher and lifeguard for my local club.
I am doing a 10-week placement as the new intern at the Ann Craft Trust. My role is to help the marketing team promote Safeguarding Adults Week.
I have done some similar work myself in my secondary school, where I co-founded a committee called 84SilenceNoMore. We raised awareness about mental health and suicide prevention through social media and other school events.
As well as helping promote Safeguarding Adults Week, I will also help to run the ACT Safeguarding Conference.
I am really looking forward to being a part of the marketing team and help safeguard adults at risk. I am committed to getting involved and help wherever I can, making sure I do my part in tackling these social matters.
