Hi, I'm Reece Slade, a 16 year old activist from Cape Town, South Africa.  I am older than Christopher and like to remind him of that occasionally, albeit it only 10 days. 
I joined the Swim For Change Team right in the beginning when I used to count Christopher’s laps at his galas - I'm pretty much the most skilled tally system user in the world!
I believe mental well-being is one of the most important topics in society but yet it does not get enough attention.
Youth have unlimited power and potential, and it is unacceptable that this potential gets oppressed by mental health discrimination.
As youth, we have the power to create change and we will use it.  Join us.
