#MEETBYC Thang Phuting
🤔❓ Did you know that Brimbank has a Youth Council? Now you do! It’s with great pleasure to introduce to you our 2021 Brimbank Youth Councillor Thang Phuting!
Name: Thang Phuting
Suburb: Deer Park
Tell us more about yourself!
My name is Thang, I come from Myanmar. I have lived in brimbank for more than 10 years. I enjoy playing soccer and swimming.
Why did you join the BYC?
The opportunity came and I immediately joined because I am passionate about giving back to the community. I want to get to know more about the brimbank community and see what I can do to bring and help the community achieve its goal. I am very grateful that Brimbank chose me as a BYC member.
What’s one piece of advice you have for young people who want to create change in their community?
My advice for young people would be to go out there and volunteer as much as they can. Not only would it help build up their confidence, they can make a real difference within their community by saying “YES” to every opportunity that comes their way. And not to be that person that just waits for the opportunity. Go out and get that opportunity.
It’s great to know more about you Thang, we look forward to seeing the great work you do as a Brimbank Youth Councillor.
