Youth Got the Power

DSC 1182 On the 12th of December 2017, 7 alumna of Mulberry School for Girls hosted an event called Youth Got the Power. They worked with the charity Stand Up Speak Out to curate the event which aimed to bring together young people from across London with individuals from varying political backgrounds to discuss issues that matter the most to the youth as well as why youth engagement in politics is so low. The panel consisted of Professor Tim Bale from Queen Mary, QMSU President Yas Yeahia, SOAS Law student and Young Star 2016 Nusrath Hassan, Bristol Politics student Ife Grillo and former Director of Communications to Ex PM David Cameron Giles Kenningham MBE. We were also privileged to be joined by the spoken word poet Anthony Anaxagorou who performed a piece for us. The event led to engaging debate and discussion with an excellent networking opportunity for the school students and the panellists. DSC 1247
