I believe in the collective power of young people. I know that when young people are encouraged to come together, and be part of the conversation, they can help achieve amazing things.
Through working at Step Up To Serve, coordinating communications for the #iwill Campaign, and managing our 200 young #iwill Ambassadors, I saw this every day. Communities coming together to address the issues that affect them is ultimately more powerful and sustainable than anything else.
Too often, I think that there’s a sense of ‘we don’t have the capacity to make change’, and I am looking to use the Director role as a platform to wake (young) people up and challenge them to realise their own potential to effect change, overcome social injustice, and build communities.
