I began my journey with Youth for Policy through Policy Camp 2018. The workshop was a stepping-stone for me to get involved in policy advocacy work as a young individual. The training that I got at the camp helped me become more mindful and I learned to come at things with a different attitude than I used to.
Along with the other fellows, I also attended gender sensitization training. As a young woman living in Bangladesh, I know that gender-equal participation is still a big problem in our society. But, throughout my journey, I have seen that within all of the activities, special efforts have been given to ensure gender-equal participation. I realize that such an approach has made me feel more welcomed when participating in any advocacy work. Moreover, I have also observed the change towards gender equality in the male volunteers as well.
