I’m proud to have grown alongside SEWF; starting from being a speaker, then a youth advisor and now a member of the Board. There is so much any young person can gain from being part of the SEWF Youth Forum, be it in growth opportunities, more knowledge, self-confidence, or global connections. I'm also very impressed by the accessibility features SEWF continues to add to their events, giving more access to marginalised communities. I truly can't wait for SEWF22 and the Youth Forum!
