Hi! My name is Paris-Ayo, I’m 18 years old and I come from Walney Island in Cumbria. I have just finished my A levels and have decided to take a gap year as a volunteer at Castlerigg before moving on to study Law at Lancaster University in 2018. In my spare time, I love to listen to music and I take every opportunity I can to sing whether that’s singing in shows or at weddings and other events.
Over the past few years I have been able to truly recognise the importance of my faith. On this gap year, I hope to be able to share my faith journey with young people and help them in discovering and understanding their own, ultimately bringing them closer to God, as I was helped by the Castlerigg team when I first came here on retreat in 2014.
I am extremely excited for what this year will bring and I can’t wait to meet you all!
