Meet Kha: Your 2024 Brimbank Youth Councillor

 In Brimbank Youth Council

It’s time to meet your 2024 Brimbank Youth Council!

The Brimbank Youth Council is made up of young people in the area, who are motivated, excited and determined to represent the young community of Brimbank.

Kha is a 17-year-old Vietnamese secondary school student who can tackle you on martial arts mat, snap the perfect pic, and reel in a fish on a lake. He’s fueled by a desire to continually improve himself.

But what truly ignites his spirit is the opportunity to empower others by sharing the knowledge and experiences he’s accumulated. Read more about Kha below.

Why did you join the Brimbank Youth Council?

I joined the Brimbank Youth Council to actively contribute to the betterment of our community, focusing on the needs and aspirations of the youth. Being part of the council allows me to advocate for positive change, address concerns, and work collaboratively with fellow members to create initiatives that enhance the wellbeing and opportunities for young individuals in Brimbank.

What are you passionate about?

I’m passionate about supporting others, particularly our youth, and the future generations in their journey of growth and development. I believe in the power of education, continuous learning, and understanding is essential for us to be the best we can be. Additionally, I share a love for karate and martial arts, as they not only promote physical well-being but also instill discipline and resilience. As an advocate for youth and a role-model for others, I strive to create opportunities for them to thrive and succeed in all aspects of their lives.

What are you hoping to achieve as a Brimbank Youth Councillor this year?

As a member of the Youth Council in Brimbank, my goal is to create and facilitate educational workshops that address the specific needs and interests of the youth in our community. These workshops would focus on skill development, career guidance, and personal growth that aim to provide practical tools for success in various aspects of their lives. My aim is to allow not only the youth in our community to be more involved with activities, but let everybody know that there are people here to support them at all times.

What does a better Brimbank look like to you?

A better Brimbank to me is a community where safety is paramount, and the diverse needs of our community are effectively met. A Brimbank that allows for equal access to opportunities, celebrates diversity, prioritises education, promotes active lifestyles, and fosters collaboration for innovation and sustainability. It’s a place where everyone feels secure, supported, and empowered to express themselves, understanding that we all have a right to safety and kindness towards each other.

What’s one piece of advice you have for young people who want to create change in their community?

One piece of advice I have for young people who want to create change in their community is to seize opportunities when they arise and not be afraid to try new things. Be open to embrace challenges, explore different approaches, and stay resilient in the face of obstacles and always push yourself to be the best you can be. Your passion and determination can inspire others and drive meaningful change in your community, and you will never know what impact you may have on others if you never put it out there.
