Youth Panellist she/her Emily

Emily is a Media and Communications student who is passionate about advocating on disability and mental health related issues in an inclusive and artistic way. She enjoys film, art, books, poetry, and drinking too much coffee!

Emily says she joined the Youth Panel because "I think it's important to have a wide range of experiences and voices in every aspect of advocacy, and, with a lived disabled experience, I can offer that perspective."

Emily's advice for young people? Go easy on yourself! Care for yourself in a way that works for you. Your health and wellbeing are your first priority.
