Marcus Rashford is currently changing the game, and no, we aren’t talking about football.
The Englishman has recently been making the headlines of every news outlet in the country, due to his political actions off the field.
Like the start of many great reform movements, it all started with a pen and paper. The 22-year-old sent out a letter to MPs, pleading to the government to extend the food voucher scheme for vulnerable children over the summer holidays.
His advocation for the policy quickly drew traction online, following a touching interview from Rashford himself, explaining why this was such an important deal to him. You see, the forward’s life hasn’t always centred around the glitz and glamour in representing Manchester United.
Rashford had to rely on such schemes growing up in his rather deprived area of Wythenshawe, with the youngster citing the struggles he and his family endured growing up. It’s a relatable story that sees the United striker become a connected figure with millions up and down the country, hence his desire to help represent such members of society.
