Authentic change making

Scout Barbour Evans is many things – a student, an over committed volunteer, a transgender activist, a mayoral candidate to name a few.    We talk about an open society, where we value openess and authenticity and the importance of being openly mentally unwell and queer.

Scout is committed to keeping learning and is a student in Otago Polytechnic’s Bachelor of Leadership for Change.

Talking points:

I really don’t believe in being someone else to get a part.

If I could wave a magic wand I would like everyone to be safe and healthy and have their basic needs met.

My advice is to be genuinely you.

There is an aspect of playing the system to change the system.

Participate in democracy everyday.
