Hey! I’m Kai and I’m 21 years old. I’m studying at Curtin University and North Metro TAFE. My focus is on peer education, mental health, and LGBTIQ+ advocacy and inclusion. I’ve been a volunteer with TransFolk of WA and other organisations for several years, engaging with trans youth in the areas of suicide intervention and crisis management. I also run my own educational consultancy business through which I teach clinicians, teachers, youth workers, and young people about a range of mental health, sexual health, legal and LGBTIQ+ issues.
As a queer trans person, I try to use my lived experiences of mental health struggles, bullying, domestic violence, and homelessness to be empathic to the needs of young people and advocate for youth issues. I am super excited to be joining the YEP Crew and to become a part of all the incredible work they do.
