Our people

Maryam

Maryam

Young trustee

As a young trustee I hope to help to create a place where young people feel safe and supported. Young people can continue to fight for change and against social injustice to make the world a better place. The best thing about being a young today is being tech savvy. We have the world at our fingertips. The young people I admire the most are all of the young trustees for all their hard work and dedication to The Children's Society.

Samia

Young trustee

As a young trustees, I hope to speak up for young people and give them a voice. I believe that young people can change the world for the better by speaking up on problems that are normally brushed under the carpet. The best thing about being young today is that I know i’m not the only one suffering and people will support me no matter what. My dream is to be able to raise awareness about bullying and racism especially in schools.

Young trustee

I hope to create positive change and be part of something bigger than myself. It’s important for me to be involved as a proud Black Muslim Women. I want others to believe they too can be part of something great. Young people bring in a new and fresh perspective. More now than anything we have a better understanding of how the world is and how much it’s changing. We are able to create more meaningful connections with the world around us.
