What is your favorite thing about advocacy?
My favorite part about advocacy is showing up and having a voice. I appreciate that I can express my opinions freely, and through advocating and pushing for topics such as climate action and mental health awareness, I am able to make a change. Youth, like me, have been becoming increasingly involved in their communities, and our efforts have gone as far as impacting policies.
What have you learned from YAPA?
I have learned a lot of valuable lessons from YAPA. From public speaking skills to organization to time management, I have developed a lot of useful skills that I will be sure to use in my life.
Any other comments you’d like to share?
YAPA has been a wonderful experience for me, and I have learned a lot of useful life skills that I hope to implement in the future.
