Scarlett-Betsy smith
My name is Scarlett-Betsy smith. I am a 13 years old Romany Gypsy and am part of GATESHert (Gypsy and Traveller empowerment) youth team. I am in year 9 and soon I will be picking my GCSEs. My interests are Art, English and Photography. My hobbies are ballroom and Latin dancing and also gymnastics. I starred in Gypsy kids our secret world which was quite interesting. A few things that not many people know about me is that I am actually obsessed with Justin Bieber and I also enjoy watching lovebird on Netflix even though it’s in a different language. For two years in a row I have gone to Auschwitz in Poland as part of the Roma remembrance Initiative. I have been the youngest participant both times which has been a really great experience especially in building up my knowledge about the importance of never forgetting this piece of history in order not to repeat it. When I'm older I'm not really sure what I want to be it seems every day it changes one day I want to be a teacher and the next day I want to be an activist and a beautician.
