YEP Comic Strip Campaign Week #2: “Some things to remember about consent”

“You ask permission to use other people’s things, you ask your parents if you can do certain things and you ask permission from your teachers to go certain places. When people say yes to these questions, they are giving their consent, when they say no, they are not consenting. It seems pretty straight forward in this context, but somehow in sexual interactions people find consent hard to understand, and that’s because it can be a little more complicated in these circumstances. ”

Vanessa Vlajkovic

Hi! My name is Nessa and I’m 20 years old. I’m studying Journalism at Edith Cowan University, with a Public Relations minor. I am an avid reader, writer, traveller and cheerleader. I’m also a passionate advocate for the deafblind community, and for other types of disability. I’ve been on the committee of the Youth Disability Advocacy Network (YDAN) at YACWA for a few months, and through them have developed a desire to become a YEP volunteer, as I want to expand my horizons.
