Mick has been with Wear it Purple almost from the beginning! As our longest standing member, Mick has grown with Wear it Purple and engaged in various positions including Youth Action Council member, leader and now Youth Engagement Officer.
Why you’re involved: I’m involved with Wear it Purple for a multitude of reasons that have changed over the six years I’ve been with WIP. Looking back over it all now I’d have to say the main reason is; when I was in high school Wear it Purple empowered me to be proud of who I am and stand for what is right. Wear it Purple inspired me to want to effect change not only in schools and workplaces but across Australia and the globe. I’m with Wear it Purple to be part of the change I want to see in the world, I want to challenge thinking beyond the norm. Most importantly I want to inspire young people to believe that they can be proud of who they are.
