Tahnae Keyser

My name is Tahnae and I am 24 years old. I was born and raised in Bunbury until 2011 when I moved to Perth to study. I am known to be a little bit goofy and clumsy. I am really passionate about health in general, but am particularly interested in mental well-being and how both mental and physical health are so closely intertwined. I absolutely love meditation, yoga, travel, cooking, nature, being crafty (trying at least), and spending time with my loved ones.

Since graduating with Honours from a Bachelor of Psychology degree at Curtin University earlier this year, I decided to take a little time for myself to recuperate and have a little break from all things psychology-related. In this time, I have been working as a barista at a local café. In recent months, the motivation and passion to pursue practical experience to compliment my theoretical studies has been reignited. I am now in the early stages of volunteering with Headspace, as well as volunteering as a Youth Connector for Act-Belong-Commit. The latter involves educating and encouraging peers to lead mentally healthy lives (a prominent passion of mine).

I am so excited to be a YEP Crew Peer Educator because I think it’s integral for youth to be provided the opportunities for support and guidance when making important decisions about their health that may have a substantial impact on their future outcomes. Furthermore, peer education is such an empowering tool to inform, educate, and therefore provide support to youth.

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.
