This year our 2019 Youth Ambassadors Network (YAN) has been incredibly busy both locally on the ground, and as advocates for their states and territories on a national level. Some of their achievements include:

    • Organising and facilitating FUSE 2019, MYAN’s national multicultural youth summit
    • Facilitating consultations on employment issues for young people nationally
    • Presenting at national consultations, forums and parliamentary hearings
    • Digital advocacy for Refugee Week and International Youth Week

A big thank you and congratulations to Narayan Khanal (NSW), Rasa Islam (WA), Cece Hylton-Dei (SA), Grace Edward (QLD), Tasnia Rafi (VIC), Jane Alia (NT) and Magda Mohamed Gamar (TAS) – your hard work and passion has been inspiring, and we look forward to following your journeys and continuing to work with you in the future. We would also like to thank all the brilliant young people who applied for the next YAN. The vast array of life experience and academic and professional accomplishments across the candidates was very impressive, and after a tough selection process we are excited to introduce our YAN 2020: Swathi Shanmukhasundaram (VIC), Maria Domina Augustine (NSW), Mary Maselina Harm (QLD), Mostafa Karimi (TAS), Mfaume Kakozi (NT) and Zahra Al Hilaly (WA).
