St John’s Cadet Corporal Ugonna UMUNNAKWE
I am a student at The John Henry Newman School in year twelve studying for my A-levels in the sixth form. Currently I study Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Sociology with aim to study either biomedical sciences or medicine at university.
I have been a member of St. John Ambulance for eight years and am currently a non-commissioned officer in the Stevenage cadet unit where I have been able to adopt a leadership position in the unit by supporting cadets and assisting staff to organise sessions whilst also developing my leadership. I am extremely proud to be a member of the organisation particularly because of the good work St John do in our society.
Within St John I promote volunteering amongst young people and frequently go on duty in order to develop my skills as a first aider within the organisation. I aim to motivate others to celebrate the diversity of young people in Hertfordshire and to overcome discrimination.
I am earnestly grateful and proud to be the first Lord-lieutenant’s cadet in Hertfordshire representing St John and look forward to interacting with many other young people in voluntary and military services.
I am committed to the achievement of high standards and aim to continue the great work of St John Cadets and hope to be an ambassador for young people in Hertfordshire as the Lord-lieutenant’s cadet.
The Lord-Lieutenant thanks the retiring cadets-Cadet Staff Sergeant Williams, Able Cadet Coull and Cadet Flight Sergeant Jenkins and Police Cadet Mansell for their hard work and support at numerous events during the last year and wishes them all well for the future.
