Youth Profile - Tyrone Reynolds

18-YEAR-OLD Tyrone Reynolds, who grew up in Kalkarinji and now calls Darwin home, has loved every minute of being involved in the LAUNCH Night Series. So much so, he’s gone from playing to volunteering. Tyrone answered a few questions for us.

Tell us about your involvement in LAUNCH Night Series?
I’ve been playing for quite a while now and have enjoyed every minute of it. I love being down there and interacting with the community this way.

You went from playing to volunteering – is volunteering or charity work something you’re passionate about?
Yes, I want to always be the best I can, and be a great leader for the younger generation.

What drew you to the LAUNCH Night Series?
Friends and peers of mine, also word of mouth – a lot of people talk about it.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be some sort of mentor, involved with young people as a youth worker. I aspire to this sort of career because I know exactly what they are going through and can be of guidance to them.

With everything that’s happened this year, what’s one of the biggest things you’ve learned?
To be grateful of everything and to not take anything for granted.

What’s a perfect weekend look like for you in D-Town?
Hungry Jacks for dinner, playing basketball at LAUNCH night series and finishing off with a nice swim at Litchfield!
