What led you to be here today and prompted you to want to join the FVG?
Youth Futures is one of the most exciting organisations that I’ve come across. Its unique structure and approach to tackling youth unemployment appealed so much so that I knew I wanted to be a part of this movement to create lasting change for the generations of youth after me, using my voice to represent others with similar lived experiences to me.

What are you up to now? (eg. In work/study/looking for work/volunteering)
I’m a Business Development and Strategy Consulting Intern at a healthcare consulting firm in my gap year. I’m also a Volunteer Vaccinator for the NHS, an entrepreneur and an incoming summer intern for Berenberg Bank. After my gap year, I’ll be studying at UCL.

What is most important to you in your life right now?
Being able to establish balance in my life!
As well as working to achieve goals that are unexpected of me.

What sort of changes do you want to be involved in making as part of the FVG?
Be a representative for South London teenagers/ESOL/British Black teenagers at tables where impactful change can be actioned.
