Gifted student, sportsman and keen volunteer Michael Enriquez has won the Wandsworth Young Person of the Year award.

A year 12 student at Ernest Bevin School in Tooting, Michael hopes to become an architect and is leading a team in a Crest award project run by Imperial College to design sustainable school buildings in the UK and Kenya.

He is also a mentor for Year 7 pupils, helps younger pupils with their reading, is a member of the college council and is chairman of Interact, the young people’s branch of the Rotary Club, at Ernest Bevin.

He raises money for the STEM4 charity which works with young people on mental health issues and is a keen sportsman, playing semi-professionally for Tooting and Mitcham FC.

Presenting his award, Mayor of Wandsworth Piers McCausland said: “Michael is a real inspiration to others and a very deserving winner of the Wandsworth Young Person of the Year award for 2019.

"All the winners here tonight have shown how lucky we are in Wandsworth to have young people who contribute so much to their school and their community.”
