Why are you on the Youth Panel at YoungMinds?

The young people's mental health crisis is more important and relevant than ever and it is a pressing matter that needs to be tackled with as much united strength as possible. Especially after the pandemic, millions and millions of young people around the world are trapped in dire situations where their voices are suppressed by lack of knowledge, culture and race. Young people are the future hope of our society and I wish to help them by representing their voices on the Youth Panel and to empower fellow young people with strength to tackle this issue by raising awareness and breaking taboos or stereotypes through this opportunity as a Youth Panellist.

Which of our values do you relate to most, and why do you think it’s an important value for us?

The value I relate the most to is: 'kindness is our strength'.

Kindness is something that I believe is desperately needed, especially in these trying and ever-changing times. It has the power to change things on a personal and global level and it’s vital at YoungMinds that our actions stem from kindness. To connect through understanding and compassion with our audience is essential.
