Living in London as a young adult I have had the chance to live in the most multicultural city in the world.  I have greatly enjoyed living in London, but I also see the challenges that a multicultural society faces as some groups have been continually marginalised due to history and institutional discrimination. By being given the chance to be part of this panel I look forward to engaging in conversations and finding solutions to the challenges that we as young people face in the coming years.

As a young adult I have tried to contribute to solving these challenges through community engagement.  Over the past year I have led a TEDx event where we engaged multiple communities throughout London and brought them together to hear new and thought provoking ideas. I am also an avid runner and am interested in molecular gastronomy.
