Young People Insight has been going for three-quarters of a year now, and bigger things are being planned for 2015.
This has all been kicked off with a bright new logo, which will be officially revealed next week. This blog will also see a few changes, as it will appear more like a website with an official domain name and some forum type elements.
However, the central element of Young People Insight is to be a voice of and for the young people. I want this to be a platform for young people to share their thoughts, views, achievements and most importantly, their stories, with the world in their own words.
Sometimes the media finds a way to twist the words that we say and on many occasions, the media portrays us young people in a negative light, but this blog will allow us to tell our side with honesty and sincerity. It will also give some older individuals the opportunity to see the young people I know and love through my eyes.
As I always say, if young people want to see a change, then the change has to start with us. So please, take some time to share your stories, thoughts, views and solutions with Young People Insight. You never know what young person you may inspire or whose perception you might change with one single post.
If you are interested in writing a piece or simply sharing your story if you don’t feel comfortable enough to write it yourself, then please get in contact. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow Young People Insight on Twitter – @YPInsight. Together we can make a real change.
