Anya Picture

Why did you join the MYC?

I know that youth are very under-represented in our community, so having the opportunity to be a part of a group that inspires and pushes for change felt like an amazing experience and one that I wanted to be a part of.

What are your passions/hobbies?

I love to sing, dance, paint, and braid hair!

Name one youth you admire and why?

Someone who I really admire is Malala Yousafzai because she fought for change at a time when there were so many barriers and so much risk. She fought for education, which is something that I think is SO important for kids.

What are issues/movements that are important to you?

I think that education is something that is very important and can be lacking in some communities. I believe that education shouldn't be a privilege, it should be a right.
