I am a Youth Caseworker for the Young Roots Rise Up Project. My role is to assist young unaccompanied asylum seekers in accessing appropriate and suitable housing, support from the Local Authority, legal representation, healthcare and mental health services.
I have been working with vulnerable migrants in London and Italy for over 5 years; in April 2015 I have also participated in a humanitarian mission in Calais refugee camps, where I had the chance to witness the extremely poor living conditions of young refugees and migrants in general. This has further motivated me to do my best to help people in need with the hope of building a fairer and more equal society for every human being
