A Talk with Esther Muthoni, Face of Kenya ambassador 2017 and now a youth leader, campaigning against knife crimes among other youth challenges. She agrees, a lot need to be done by the community and the youth themselves to change the present narratives on black youth in the United Kingdom.
Working with young people can be difficult, but Esther points out that it is extremely important to listen and to try to understand them. Lacking academic and social support the fear of getting involved with drugs increases among young people and therefore, being a role model and supporting them is crucial.
