Hi friends! I'm at Amnesty International's (AI) International Council Meeting (ICM) in Rome, Italy this week, working with the excellent AI sectors worldwide! 🌏

I will be speaking in 2 Panel events - on ✔️Youth Day (Aug.10) and on ✔️ Human Rights Defenders (Aug. 15) exposing the challenges that HRDs on the frontline face in doing their work and solutions to challenges of recognition, stigma, security/protection and equipping. 💪

Some juicy juicy discussions are up ahead!! 😉

Great people coming together is one of the things that puts a MASSIVE smile on my face 😀

So grateful I got to meet all these amazing young people again at the Youth Coalition for Sexual and Reproductive Rights AGM! We talked about everything from SRHR, politics and the state of the world, to beer, and funny local and international traditions.
Friendship knows no borders, my friends 😊😊✌🏻️

Here’s a not-so-happy photo of me (lol) in the Expert Meeting organised by Amnesty International entitled ‘The Barriers Faced by Young human Rights Defenders’. Following the first Forum on Human rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law in U.N. Geneva which was focused on “Widening the Democratic Space: the role of youth in public decision-making”, Amnesty international saw an opportunity to create a space for in-depth discussions among a smaller group of young human rights defenders and key stakeholders who were in Geneva. Approximately 30 participants were invited (including myself) to an expert meeting on ‘Breaking down the Barriers Faced by Young human Rights Defenders’. These in-depth discussions focused on analysing the barriers and opportunities to widening the civic space for young human rights defenders.

Judging from the photo, YES, I enjoyed and learned a lot from this meeting! How inspired I have become working alongside so many talented youth leaders from all around the globe! (c) @amnesty

Hi friends!! :) If you have a brief moment, I’d like to ask for your time to read the blog that I wrote for my organization, Youth Coalition for Sexual and Reproductive Rights which I represented in the recently concluded 4th Inter-agency and Expert Group Meeting on the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Indicators in Geneva, where I advocated for increased youth participation and inclusion in the 230 indicators that are meant to measure the success of the SDGs.

In my blog post, I explained why following this sometimes dense process is integral to ensuring that data captures the diverse experiences of young people and that 'no one is left behind'. I want to engage young people and put the YOU back in youth!

Any and all feedbacks are appreciated! Thank you in advance :) Link: http://bit.ly/2h1WK57

Board call duration: 4hrs 1min and 21 secs.  Sometimes, my first 'job' becomes my second job, and my second job becomes my first. Sometimes they are all the same. But I am lucky, I actually, really and truly love what I do.

Was able to deliver a statement on behalf of Youth Coalition for Sexual and Reproductive Rights in the 1st United Nations Forum on Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law! "Since we are talking about youth participation, sustainable development and human rights protection, I would just like to open a discussion for those marginalised group not covered in the sustainable development goals and who's rights are most often violated. Specifically, LGBTQ youth and those people who do sex work. I believe these young people can’t participate in democracy if they are criminalised for their work or who they love.

My question is: How can we make sure that the most marginalised and least talked about youth are included and are NOT LEFT BEHIND in the Agenda2030? How can we give them significance, empowerment and role in the SDGs?

We, young people, believe that the real test of commitments to NO ONE LEFT behind will be the actual inclusion of these excluded groups in the plan and indicators for SDGs." #forumhrdem

So thankful to have met each and everyone of these beautiful souls.
We shared our dreams, goals, passions. We laughed, smiled and learned so much from one another.

It was a great AGM and again, I am so thankful to have met you all and can't wait to meet you again!
It is a beautiful thing when passionate like-minded individuals unite!
I took a piece of inspiration from all of you. ❤
