Member of the Race for Opportunity Youth Advisory Panel. A group of young people aged between 16 & 24 years old chosen to work with Race for Opportunity to find solutions to the challenges of unemployment and progression.
My name is Karl Lassel Jackson and I am 21. This is my third year within the acting industry where I have been fortunate enough to experience its creative, artistic energy. I recently starred in BBC1's Drama Series 'Casualty' and have been continuously touring around England with the Arc Theatre. It was through Arc that I was able to get involved with RfO as we put on a performance at Google UK and from this sparked the idea to create a youth panel. Having been unemployed for over a year, trying to cope with the mental pressure from doors being closed in your face time and time again, I now feel a responsibility to help and aid others by any means, to pick themselves back up.
