What a weekend – Together Again!
Excitement and joy filled the air as members of the HAEi Youngsters Advisory Group got together at the 2022 HAEi Global Leadership Workshop.
“It was amazing to interact with all the hard-working HAE advocates from all over the world!” says Nanna, an HAEi Youngsters’ Advisory Group member. “It never ceases to amaze me what people from our global HAE family can achieve through strong will and advocacy.”
“The Member Organization leads were pleasantly surprised to see all we have done over the years. I have to say, even for us as a group, seeing our work presented on the big screen meant a lot! It showed all member organizations that amazing things happen when young people come together! I get emotional seeing our community grow so much”, says Eirini, a member of the HAEi Youngsters’ Advisory Group.
According to Nevena Tsutsumanova, the Youngsters Community Coordinator: “Seeing how the HAEi Youngsters’ Community has grown since we first met at the 2016 HAE Global Conference in Madrid is truly inspiring. HAEi Youngsters’ Community members have participated in four international meetings, online workshops, campaigns, and meetups. We have had more than 350 young people connect and form friendships to last a lifetime.”
“I had an incredible weekend of learning, fun, and exciting new announcements in Frankfurt! It was so inspiring to be together again as an HAE community and learn about new initiatives, events, and resources, especially the LEAP program for youngsters!” says Isabel, a member of the HAEi Youngsters’ Advisory Group.
The HAEi Youngsters Advisory Group currently consists of six members: Nanna (Denmark), Hana (South Africa), Dominika (Poland), Jacob (Canada), Eirini (Greece), and Isabel (United States).
