Everyday in my job as an environmental science teacher, sustainability coordinator and avid animal rights activist; I educate young people about the environment and the importance of being a voice for those that have no voice.
I would love to attend the forum so that I can broaden my knowledge, keep the fires burning and inform my students about the latest wins and those battles that are still to be fought. Thank you.

Hi Amy!
My name is Isabella. I%u2019m 14 (turning 15 this year) and would love love love to attend the Animal Activists Forum in Sydney on the 18th and 19th of October.
I absolutely adore animals, in fact, I have four very noisy dogs at home, three of which we adopted. I believe that animal cruelty is morally wrong which is why I have subscribed to the Animals Australia and Unleashed websites for updates on important issues and victories. My family and I are also monthly donors to Animals Australia and support ending animal cruelty by simply buying free range eggs, RSPCA approved meat and Animals Australia%u2019s amazing merchandise!
In my school community, I am the junior representative of the RSPCA Club, a position I have held for two years. Through this club, we have raised awareness and funds for our local RSPCA shelter. I am also an executive member of my school%u2019s Conservation Club. This environmental club often works alongside the RSPCA Club. Together, we have sponsored several different animals including orangutans and tigers and have established %u2018Meat Free Monday%u2019 at our school canteen.
As an animal activist, I am currently organising a whole school campaign to raise awareness and money for Animals Australia. I will hopefully be able to order merchandise from Animals Australia for students to buy, print out petitions for students and staff to sign and hold a cake sale %u2013 that%u2019s the best way to raise money at my school! I plan on starting this campaign early next year.
I would love to continue to be a voice for animals and I think that by attending the Animal Activists Forum I can enhance my knowledge and skills to more active not just within school, but in the wider community. Thanks happy
Regards, Isabella

Please give me this opportunity. I desperately want to make a difference however I need further education  to  support me to be able to do this. I am currently  studying, at deakin university completing a social work degree and it am hoping to use this degree in educating people in some way with animals but need a helping hand to get me in the right direction. I believe being around like indeed people will inspire my commitment and desire to make a difference. I am extremely passionate about animal welfare I really care.

Hi,

I'm 16(Melbourne) and would love this oppurtunity to meet like minded people who also have a passion for animals. I don't necessarly know that much about how to make a difference or as much as i would like about the issue so this oppurtunity would be one in a life time. I hope you consider my view.

Thanks,

Lauren

Hey, Amy.
This opportunity would be an opportunity for me to describe how much Veganism has changed the way I live my life. Veganism is soon to be the way of life for every living being. The Animals depend on the human race to provide a world where they can live freely and without fear from us. Winning a free ticket to this event will enable me to pass on what I've learned from other people on how to approach Veganism. It will enable me to listen to other people and their experiences and the moments that led them to becoming Vegetarian/Vegan. Because I truly believe that to enhance one's passion for a movement such as this, then the ideal way to do that is to travel and attend events and functions like this. It's hard for Vegetarians and Vegans to be a part of mainstream consumption, so when there's an event built for us to be able to learn from others who believe the same way we do is of paramount importance. The only way this movement of which we have changed our lives around for can grow is to learn from other people. And so, with all that said, I would love to win this free ticket to an event that will be full of stories, learning, networking and growing.
Thank you,
Stewart G.

Hi I'm Cammie,
My love of animals has made me work hard at my goals of becoming a vet of agricultural scientist so I can hopefully improve all animals way of life.
I would love to go to this forum to speak to others just like me, I have used my position in my schools student forum to get the student body on board with saying no to animal cruelty and I have set up and run many of my own activist activities mainly handing out flyers and talking to people who genrly care.
I think this seminar will help further my efforts in my local community.
