Meet Lahna: Our New 16-19s Specialist

Hello, I'm Lahna and I have started an exciting new role as the 16-19s specialist with SchoolsworkUK, as part of Youthscape. Without this sounding like an awkward dating profile; I currently live in London, I love coffee and EDM music and I am hugely passionate about seeing young people's lives transformed.

I grew up in not-so-sunny Southend, but have since moved to London where I studied a BA in Theology and Youth Ministry. My faith really underpins why I do what I do, and is why I care so much about seeing young people empowered.

16-19 year olds are going through huge changes in their lives, are developing into complex, beautiful, independent beings, and are battling the tug of war between teenage-hood and adulthood. I desperately want to see these young people supported, and am so excited to be creating resources that aims to help those working with this age group.

One question I am starting with is how we get 16-19 year olds wrestling and engaging with social, moral, spiritual and cultural topics.

I would absolutely love to hear from you, so please do get in contact and share any experiences you have of working with 16-19 year olds, or let me know if you have any questions!

Speak to you soon,
