15, from the south coast of Australia. She eats too many mangos, feels at home by the ocean, and is pursuing her passions in nearly all art forms. LOVES: yoga, surfing, reading, film-making, speaking french, rain, thai food, print and flowy pants.
17, from Dorset, England, finding inspiration in the beautiful things that surround her. Drawing is her form of escapism, a way of hiding from the business of life. She draws all sorts of things – from plants and people to cosy spaces and moons. She draws to create her own little world of freedom and peace.
Mallory Shaw – Email Writer
A 21 year old from a small town in Louisiana, who can always be found dressed in neutrals with a cup of earl grey in her hand, craving yellow curry. Words are her oxygen; she’s constantly reading or scribbling away in her journal, trying her best to find the words that will make an impact.
Darcy Campbell – Journalist
17, from rural Australia, she’s never without a smile, cup of coffee and glitter in her hair. Her love for journalism and dislike for politics/hypocrites characterise her as one of the most outspoken young woman you could ever meet. Never shying away from writing about the big stuff, she believes above all else in love transforming and uniting communities.
Furqan – Journalist
16 year old Canadian who happens to be a fan of late night political satire and spicy food. She believes, when used efficiently, anger can lead to art and beautiful word play. Breaking down giants in today’s politics is her specialty, and within the occasional rant or composed essay, she shares her outlook and aims to engage young people like her.
16, from San Diego, California. Music is her passion, enveloping every aspect of her life. She believes the best clothes are thrifted and the only way to live is in a house eaten from the inside out with plants. She’s happiest in the rain (ironically) or at a local concert dancing until she can’t breathe with the bass pounding up her feet and into her stomach.
