“When I was six years old I woke up from a nightmare and my dad was watching a plane crash on the news. I asked, ‘Who are all the people with ‘un’ on their backs?’ He said, ‘It’s not ‘un’, it’s ‘UN’, an organisation that helps people all over the world. They’re mainly a group of volunteers looking for survivors.’ I thought, ‘Oh wow! I want to help people when I grow up.’
