Hello, My name is Kelvin Akpaloo, 26 Years old, Afro-Irish. I am a creative director for Eurobug International out Work and collaboration Ltd, member of the NYCI-Young Voices programme, Making Links, a No Hate Speech Movement Ambassador, a choreographer, a performer, activist for the minorities and a Spoken Word artist.
And October this year, I was selected by the NYCI as one of Ireland´s European Youth Delegates at the first online European Youth Conference 2020 hosted Germany.
I am passionate about human rights and believe in the power of the youth. My goal is to inspire and make a change in this world by helping to attain an inclusive, diverse and integrative community in local, national and international level, especially for the minorities. And my dream is to be a sign of positive change, like Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King J and people that embody positive change in this world.
