About YMCA Victoria’s Youth Press Gallery

YMCA Victoria’s Youth Press Gallery is a program for young people aged between 16-25 currently studying, or who have an interest in, political journalism, photography, or filming to gain valuable experience serving as the Press Gallery for the YMCA Victoria Youth Parliament program. In this series of blogs we are proud to introduce you to the members of the 2020 Youth Press Gallery, and share their achievements and published works during their time with the program.

Introducing Jesse Munzel

Age: 24

Find me on:

About me: As a 6th generation farmer in the small town of Gunbower, that I call home, I have always had a deep passion for community engagement and ensuring the voices of rural youth are heard. This passion has directed many of my pursuits today, undertaking a Bachelor of Business and Fine Arts, working in Accelerator start-ups, and volunteering within youth engagement roles, all despite Chronic Kidney Disease. Because I believe that we all have a responsibility to take care of the environment we live in and provide a helping hand within our local community. Hence, in a nutshell, I look for how to lead change where I can, with the aim of building paths for young leaders to walk down into successful futures.
