Izin Akhabau

Seventeen-year-old Izin is an aspiring journalist, aiming to tell the stories that matter to her generation. She has set up a website where she publishes her articles and interviews with inspiring youth (such as actress and musician Paigey Cakey). She has also written for other publications, interviewing the first Colombian dancer at the Royal Ballet. Her greatest passion is debate, and she has been judged Best Speaker two years consecutively. But she is most proud of the time she spent volunteering in Bosnia and Herzegovina with disadvantaged Romany Gypsy children. Inspired by a study day at Oxford University, she hopes to pursue a joint honours degree in English and French.
