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.

I believe sexual health is often an overlooked, sensitive topic that has much controversy surrounding it. For me, I have encountered people older than myself who aren’t aware of menstruation, childbirth and many other issues related to sex and sexual health that most of us take for granted. So, it’s my hope to help educate people and get some hands-on experience presenting to different groups about these important issues.
