Thrinayani, 18, joined the Board of Trustees in October 2015 as one of two Youth Advisers, a role where young people take part in the governance issues of UNICEF UK.

From a young age Thrinayani has been passionate about children’s rights and being able to make a difference. She is a highly motivated individual who has committed herself to being a champion for young people through her various roles which have included: being a member of Amplify (a group which advises the Children’s Commissioner for England on children’s rights); participating in Youth Parliament  (from 2013-2015).

Following months of campaigning in local schools and youth clubs Thrinayani was elected a Member of the UK Youth Parliament where amongst many things she  advocated for 16 year-olds to be given the right to vote in all public elections. In November 2014 Thrinayani also had the opportunity to speak in the Chamber of the House of Commons during the televised UK Youth Parliament debate.
