“The youth should have faith in their own voice and then the larger community will believe that there’s merit to our struggles,” says 22-year-old Ali Noura, a member of CMY’s Youth Advisory Group and CMY’s Youth Parliament 2018 team.
A student of Economics, Ali is passionate about law and policy.
“My goal is to target the most prominent social policy issues by taking the tools and frameworks from not just economic, but also culture studies, psychology and social theory as well.” When he’s not busy studying his Bachelor’s of Commerce and Diploma in Arabic at Melbourne University, Ali is taking up 'opportunities to follow my passions'.
He counts his stint with CMY's 2018 Youth Parliament team as one such opportunity.
“Our Bill is called Fostering Positive Relationships Bill,” he explains.
“It is an education reform bill which proposes an education program for all schools, regardless of financial or religious affiliation, that talks about what constitutes a healthy relationship with friends, family, work colleagues, neighbours etc.”
“The Bill also covers mental health and how you address mental health issues and also how to seek help for yourself and other people.” “Hopefully, this will positively impact all the relationships that young people have now and will go on to have as well.” #youth #youthparliament #parliament #policy #debating #passionproject #opportunities #multicultural #youthissues #mentalhealth #takecare #ypvic
