I represent Malmös Unga, I’ve been a part of Malmös Unga since the end of 2007 and I participate in as many events and meetings as I can. I’ve gotten to visit other organizations in Sweden through them, met politicians and arranged big events for the young people of Malmö.

I don’t have a lot of experience, but in 2008 I helped arrange a youth exchange in Malmö called ”Our right to influence” where two youths from seven european countries participated. For four days we had workshops, discussions, activities and presentations where we talked for about different ways to get your voice heard, how much can young people around Europe actually influence society and why many people want to make a difference and speak up, but choose not too. We also exchanged a lot of ideas and got inspiration from the other participants.

Also, in summer of 2010 I had the chance to participate in a European youth exchange in Greece, about recycling and environmental sustainability. We were six people from Sweden, me and three other girls represented Malmös Unga and it was very educational, many presentations and visits to different factories where they recycled paper and bottles.
