I joined the Young Ambassador program because: I am an active advocate for the importance of diverse lived and living experience. I believe that UNICEF embodies the concept of ‘Nothing about us or for us, without us.’ I resonate strongly with UNICEF’s core values and how they amplify voices that are not often heard.
One thing I would like to change for children and young people in Australia: The voices of young people are often overlooked or drowned out by people in decision making positions. As children and young people, we have a fundamental right to be involved in decision making that affects us. As our representatives, decision makers have a responsibility to support us, not just as partners, but as leaders. I believe that, together, we can co-design a future for all people, regardless of age, background, identity, or neurodiversity.
