I am Lauren and I’m a full-time student. I’m in my first year of Law at Macquarie University, and I also volunteer as a Multicultural Youth Ambassador with the Multicultural Youth Affairs Network (MYAN).
I believe that WH&Y will help produce a better understanding of the health and wellbeing needs of adolescents. Teenagers are not all the same. We are all different - not just in culture, ethnicity or religion, but also physically, mentally and spiritually.
I joined the WH&Y Commission so that I could make a small start towards making change. I believe that even a small change is the first big step towards making a difference.
