Age and location
24, Tottenham

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 so much to share about my experience of finding meaningful employment. Equally, I want to learn from others about their journey and finding employment where they can thrive. I believe that youth employment is a social issue with so many knock-on effects. I wanted to join an organisation that is committed to addressing this problem.

What are you up to now? (eg. In work/study/looking for work/volunteering)
I graduated from the University of Manchester in 2018 with a degree in geography. Currently, I’m working at a leading technology consultancy as an analyst, initially starting on the Business and Technology Graduate scheme. My interests with technology lie within User and User Experience research.

What is most important to you in your life right now?
Right now, I’m focused on being intentional with everything that I am committing to, ensuring that I am bringing value to everything that I am doing and continually learning.

What sort of changes do you want to be involved in making as part of the FVG?
I want to shape how youth employment is viewed within society by bringing to light that some young people, especially from marginalised communities, face challenges to find or thrive in employment or training.
