Hey! My name is Jesse and I’m a 23 year old from Fremantle, WA. I’m finishing up my Diploma of Youth Work with North Metro TAFE, completing my last practical placement here with the YEP crew. I am extremely passionate about politics, advocacy and education and I’m so fortunate to be working with YEP in the space of peer education.
I’m also a busy musician! I play drums with a few bands around Perth, and most weekends you’ll probably catch me at a local gig somewhere. In my down time, you’ll find me re-watching The West Wing or The Office, except that’s all a lie and I’m really watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
As a young trans man, I hope to use my lived experience and qualification to advocate for those in my community without a voice, and to create better social and health outcomes for our LGBTQIA+ community at large. My focus is on empowering and educating young people, and I’m looking forward to contributing to the wonderful work done by the YEP crew.
