This is Jemille, but you are welcome to Jemille Mckenziecall her Jem. Jem is 22 years old, lives in Strathdale, and is passionate about changing the world. To help her mission, she is studying her Honour’s year in Criminology with a goal of bettering the lives of domestic violence victims. She is also the Victorian representative on CanTeen’s National Representative and Advisory Team, assisting in bettering the lives of current and future young people impacted by cancer. Outside of her current roles, she has also advocated state government for changes to the Anti-Discrimination Act, went to Japan to assist in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami relief, as well as many small initiatives targetted towards young people. With all of her experiences and roles, she has learned an important lesson in sharing stories and other’s voices.

Jem hopes she can bring those stories to her role as youth councillor while changing the community she loves for the better.
