Ahsey Burnett

Barker sat down with Bristol Young Heroes Winner 2017 Ashley Burnett to talk about her work with children and how it feels being nominated for BYH.

Bristol Young Heroes is an award ceremony in Bristol honouring young people and the amazing things that they do, awards are split into categories and then an overall winner is decided.

I was lucky enough to sit down and interview the overall winner (unbeknown to her at the time) Ashley Burnett and we spoke about her work with young people and her plans for the future, check it out in the video below.

Ashley was nominated by Youth Moves whose website you can find through this Rife Guide link:

We offer paid internships and publish work by young writers, photographers, illustrators, and filmmakers from all sorts of backgrounds, helping them get into creative careers. Rife has reached over 8,000 young people through our workshops, over 220 young people have made stuff for Rife on topics ranging from mental health to identity to baked beans, and last year, over 200,000 people visited our website.

In these complex and uncertain times hearing from and supporting young people who are advocating for social change and contributing fresh perspectives has never been so important.
