Becca Lyon

Like all bootcampers, I have a strong sense of what’s fair and what isn’t. That's probably why working with communities in Kenya and South Africa left me angry about inequality, but inspired to do something about it. Right now I'm managing a campaign on children’s diabetes care at Diabetes UK and volunteering with Movement for Change on the side to regulate letting agencies in Walthamstow. Oh, and I’m also part of a dance troupe.
