TANAYAH GODLEY – YELLOW HOUSE MIDDLE SCHOOL CAPTAIN
What do you hope to achieve this year in your role?
One of the many reasons I signed up for this role was to encourage respect. I am a big believer in treating others the way you wish to be treated. A simple way we can all show respect is by acknowledging each other’s beliefs and individuality. I hope that by the end of this year everyone in the school community feels equally respected by one another.
Who is a leader that you admire and why do you admire them?
I strongly admire Jameela Jamil. She is an amazing actor and activist. Jameela is not afraid to voice her opinion and stand up for others. She runs the Instagram account ‘I_weigh’ which encourages people of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds to love and support themselves. I believe that she is an inspiring role model for all young women.
What are some of your goals for the future?
I strive to graduate high school and university, although I’m not yet sure what I want to study at university. I would also love to travel all over the world and experience many different cultures and ways of living.
