What led you to be here today and prompted you to want to join the FVG?
I wanted to join the Futures Voices Group because I have a plethora of insights and real life experiences to share about my journey to finding employment. Hopefully I’ll be able use my voice to represent others like me who need someone to speak up for them. The FVG is the perfect forum for listening and then taking action.
What are you up to now? (eg. In work/study/looking for work/volunteering)
I graduated in 2020. I’ve had a few roles since then, currently I work for a technology consulting company as a digital consultant. I’m interested in anything digital/product.
What is most important to you in your life right now?
Balance! Navigating life as a young adult and balancing all the challenges that comes with this is quite tricky. Being career driven, whilst also finding time for family, friends, hobbies is the key challenge I’m working on in right now.
What sort of changes do you want to be involved in making as part of the FVG?
I want to empower young people to influence the youth employment landscape. Often programmes built to help young people are created without the input of young people. The FVG looks to change this, and hopefully we can be an example to other decision makers across the country.
