Co-founder of Youth Without Borders inspires our Senior girls

In June, a group of Year 12 girls organised a guest speaker to come to Ascham and talk to our Seniors, as well as other senior students from high schools around Sydney.

Yassmin Abdel-Magied is an engineer, 2015 Young Queenslander of the Year and co-founder of Youth Without Borders, and she delivered a talk to almost 300 students and parents in the Packer Theatre. One student said, ‘I was astounded by her inspirational words about her life, the organisation that she founded and the principles that she believes are necessary to succeed’.

A barbecue followed, with our students raising $1,700 to go to Youth Without Borders, which empowers young people to work together to positively change their communities and beyond.
