“My Parents Didn’t Talk to me About Sex” – YEP Crew Golda Signal on ABC 720 Afternoon Program

abc-720

Golda Signal grew up in Uganda, where sex is not widely discussed. There was no such thing as a chat about the birds and the bees. In fact, her parents didn’t discuss the topic at all. Now living in Perth, Golda says there is a real need in the community for young African girls to learn about sex education. So she has volunteered for the Youth Educating Peers program run by the Youth Affairs Council. She explained to Gillian O’Shaughnessy what it was like growing up in a family where the topic of sex was taboo, and why it’s so important to talk to young people in Perth.

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.
