Kai Schweizer

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.

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.
