I am passionate about

Actions

I am the youth advisor of Victorian Multicultural Commission. Together with other young advisory group, we provide advice to the Victorian government, through the department of Premier and Cabinet, on issues and initiatives that affect young Victorians from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. I am part of a working group examining the level of cultural awareness in Victoria and how this is represented in media. I am also currently involved with Centre for Multicultural Youth to run a campaign addressing multicultural youth, passion and talent. I see this as a crucial campaign because it aims to create awareness of the stereotypes and labels given to youth who want to pursue their talent instead of going to tertiary education and continuing their academics. We are hoping to encourage the youth to follow their passion and take the next step to pursue their dream.
