Young people are underestimated in our society

Hello, my name is Laura. I’m 17 and originally from Iasi, Romania. I’ve been living in Fossamastra for six years. I’ve been involved in YEPP from the start.

We’ve managed to organise successful events such as a concert in the city centre and a multicultural party in a big venue, and I’ve had the chance to attend a Youth Bank workshop in Warsaw.

I think organisational skills are important on everyday life and that’s something we’re developing with YEPP. In our society, young people are underestimated and we must advocate for our right to be heard.
