"Joining Campfire Convention has felt like diving into a pool of refreshing bliss, the freedom of working towards a collective goal of community and harmony is beyond anything I could have ever expected from an internship"
We are delighted to welcome Victoria Wheeler to the Campfire community as our first ever Digital intern.
Victoria graduated with a BA (Hons) in Creative Writing with Philosophy and Ethics from Bath Spa University. She is an inspiring and talented writer, with a passion for creating innovative content as you will see from her forthcoming articles for Campfire. We are excited at the prospect of Victoria helping us to engage and involve more young people in Campfire and she has oodles of ideas about how we can do this.
Commenting on this opportunity Victoria says "Joining Campfire Convention has felt like diving into a pool of refreshing bliss, the freedom of working towards a collective goal of community and harmony is beyond anything I could have ever expected from an internship."
Campfire Firestarter Pete Lawrence is excited about the new possibilities that Victoria's arrival opens up : "We've been keen for a while now to get moving with Campfire's 'kindling' initiative, welcoming young people into our circle. They are our future and often have more of a finger on the pulse than most of the so-called more mature members amongst us. Reading Mac MacCartney's 'Children's Fire' book and its quoting in parliament last year has helped shape an alignment towards a more interconnected, caring, empathic society that promotes inter-generational wellbeing and celebrates beauty in all its forms. We are earth’s protectors, custodians and stewards of the human and non-human kingdoms and we owe it to honour a commitment to leaving a more life-affirming legacy for our children and their future generations. We are gradually discovering how to be better ancestors. We need to be the shoulders that young people are able to stand on. Today has been an important step for Campfire and we had a very productive and inspiring first meeting with Victoria about some potential opportunities. I am impressed by her enthusiasm and outlook but equally by her intuitive grasp of what Campfire's vision and more importantly, its potential"
