ITS EDUCATION ASIA ARTICLE


Kadence Wong - 2022-23 President of ITSF YAC

By Danny Harrington, MD ITS Education Asia


Setting up a Youth Advisory Committee was one of the most important steps for us as a Foundation. We are here to serve and empower youth and it is therefore vitally important that not only do youth have a voice in our organization but that that is demonstrably so.

Having considered numerous potential applicants, we settled on a fantastic group of ten and they’re first meeting was in June 2022. At this meeting, they needed to elect a President for the year, and Kadence was the standout choice, put in place by unanimous decision.

Kadence is a Y12 at Sha Tin College here in Hong Kong. She has long been passionate about various global issues in today's society, particularly youth empowerment, mental health and the intersection between health and the environment. As an SDG Advocate, she also seeks to advance the SDGs, with an emphasis on goal 4 (Quality Education), goal 13 (Climate Action) and goal 17 (Partnerships for the Goals).

She has headed up several youth-led organisations and believes it is essential for youth to pursue passion projects whilst engaging with their chosen issues on a grassroots level. Having managed a core team of ~50 individuals for ISSIA HK, coordinated logistics for conferences and forums with 100+ participants, and created written or visual content for 5+ organisations, she has accumulated experience in how to be an ambitious, effective, yet caring leader.

She aims to help communities amplify youth voice, jumpstart social change and break through the status quo to help the world “suck less”.
