Chloe is a Spark Ambassador because she thinks it is important for young people in the community to help out bigger organisations that are run by adults.
My name is Edward Sethaphanich but you can call me Eddie. I was born in Singapore and lived there for 12 years coming to Australia in 2018. I am Chinese, Indian, Thai and Filipino by descent. I enjoy serving the community and being academically challenged (despite going to a sports school). Some of my achievements include writing two speeches to parliament and winning a ‘Special Visionary Award’ from Spark Tank. I am very honoured to be part of the Spark Advisory Board serving as a Youth Ambassador.
