In January 2020, upon arrival at the GMYCA I felt nervous about what it would be like, however I was warmly welcomed and have enjoyed being a member ever since!
The YCA has provided me with endless opportunities to use my voice as a young person. This has boosted my confidence level and built my ability to make meaningful connections with different groups of people in Greater Manchester. Becoming the inclusivity lead of the YCA has been an honour and an amazing learning experience; from leading icebreakers, engaging in discussions with the Mayor, to speaking with other youth organisations- it has truly taught me that I can be impactful and so can you! It only takes you to realise the power that your voice carries.
