Project Description

Diana Hysenaj

Age 19, England

My social action journey has involved working within communities to drive change and contribute to tackling key issues present within society. Through my work with Fuse, tackling youth unemployment through youth-led co-design, I have co-authored a report paper (with the UCL and Hackney Quest) on the issues young people face. This paper gives a deeper insight into how organisations, communities and individuals can work together to provide meaningful services, support and employment for young people. I also very much enjoyed working with Iamthecode as a global mentor, helping to alleviate the current global STEM skills shortage in marginalised communities.  Finally, I am a young leader for My Life My Say, an organisation empowering young people to participate in democracy and aspire to continue volunteering for a range of projects and organisations.
