My name is Ife Grillo and I'm excited to be joining the Omnipolitics!
I have recently founded and work as the director to an organisation called COMPLAINT2COMPAIN. We work to teach young people about how they can be campaigners and change things for the better at their schools, in their local community, in their country and in the world. I also work as a Director to an organisation called On That Point which delivers workshops and training on issues not normally addressed in schools, including tackling rape culture, gender stereotypes and LGBTQ+ issues.
I am an National Executive to an organisation called Student Voice which advocates for the rights of secondary schools students in influencing decisions made in their school and in govermental policy. I also work as an Ambassador for Model Westminster which tries to improve young peoples political knowledge. I also work as an Online Mentor to BeatBullying which I really enjoy.
I do alot of work with the UK Youth Parliament serving as the Member fo Youth Parliament for Hackney and the Youth Voice Secretary for London and that has really helped me find a wider body of young people who are as passionate as I am about making sure youth are empowered! I sit on several Youth Advisory Panels for National Organisations as I feel it is important for young people to be able to influence the work done in the Third Sector at a Board Level.
When it comes down to it I spend most of my time campaigning for different causes which I strongly believe in and work with organisations including: Plan UK, Everyday Sexism, BeatBullying, NAT, Oxfam, Unicef, Young Hackney and the NHS.
My Favourite Political Quote is: ''The Philosophy of the School Room in one generation will be the Philosophy of Government in the next" - Abraham Lincoln
Favourite Politicians: Every person who cares about society and people.
Political Ideology in a Sentence: All Parties have problems, my political belief is the idea that everyone can make a difference and should be respected, that should be upholded by every party and when they do, I'll join one.
