We chat to Aya Chebbi, the first Youth Envoy for the African Union. Recently voted one of the world’s top 20 most influential young people in government, Aya first became known for her online activism, running the Proudly Tunisian blog during the Tunisian Revolution in 2010/11.
Now the first Youth Envoy for the African Union, Aya is championing the voice of young people and underrepresented groups as part of Agenda 2063. We chat to Aya about her efforts supporting thousands of social movement leaders, feminist groups, and youth activists on blogging, mobilisation, and non-violence.
We get Aya’s thoughts on privilege and power in the internet age, and why digital inclusion is so important. We also hear Aya’s reflections on mental health, authentic leadership, and being your radical self. A truly inspirational listen!
