Diana Aganey, to use the words of someone older and wiser, is a “poet, philosopher and journalist”. Having finished her studies at St Andrews University, she now prefers to dedicate her time to writing while exploring herself and the world around her.
Beth Munro is a recent graduate of International Development with French. Whilst at University, she started a group running politics workshops in local schools and youth centres. Our newest addition to the team, Beth is excited to work with Shout Out to provide a space for Young People to express their opinions and the tools to do so in a powerful way. Wishing she had been introduced to politics at a younger age, and enraged by the exclusion of young people from the political sphere, she is committed to engaging young people in politics and empowering them to use their voice to make the change they want to see in the world.
