Project Description

Jonelle Awomoyi

Age 20, England – Greater London

My social action journey began in Croydon and has taken me to the House of Commons, and led to me talking about women’s rights at the United Nations in New York this year.

Having started as a Croydon Youth Councillor, I became a Member of the Youth Parliament a year later when I was still a Sixth Form student. I used this platform to help improve mental health services in my area.

Now, alongside my university studies, I’m back in Westminster as a British Youth Council Parliamentary Ambassador, focusing on the Real Living Wage.

I’m excited to find out where my journey will take me next.
