At Compass Youth, we are always looking for new ways of bringing our campaigns closer to the community. The ideas we try out, the campaigns we work on, the relationships we build together.

Having been inspired by the "talking wall" of a community group in South Africa, and challenged by Compass' very own mission to take "
the pulse of the nation and identify the hopes and fears of the people before outlining some of the policy ideas to build a better Britain.", I wanted youth activists to tell their narrative. I was amazed by the energy and passion of the people I met - whether they're our members, supporters or from other campaigning groups - and the talents they bring to making change happen.

I wanted to share those stories with you. I hope you enjoy them. We will be publishing these interviews on a regular basis.

As a teaser, we feature our first two interviews - All consuming Amisha and Knowle West Boy.
