In summer 2018 I listened to Frans Timmermans saying there is without question a need for the visions of the youth and our idealism, but asked critically how we will instrumentalize our idealism. Shortly after I meet Volt and for the first time saw myself represented in a political party and the actionable pathway to realize our courageous visions for our national countries and Europe as a continent. I hope my presence in Volt can inspire other young people to dare to care and be brave enough to take part in making the vision they believe in a reality and that there is a place for every age in politics.
