I am extremely interested in human rights and equality and I feel that an active knowledge of these fields is essential.

My long term aim is to make a difference in these areas through a career working for international humanitarian organisations and engaging in meaningful discussions and voicing my thoughts, opinions and ideas wherever possible.

My short term goals focus around two key ideas:

• Educating myself about human rights issues and solutions...

Through my blog, I will research various human rights issues, looking at the extent and urgency of the issue and currently proposed solutions. I will also weigh in and give my opinions on the subject.

• Making it easier for other young people to get involved in human rights advocacy and activism...

Setting up a national youth council for human rights and equality, to give young people a voice in these areas.
