Youth Ambassadors

Meet Justin, a Belgium Youth Ambassador for ONE


Join the fight against extreme poverty

Brussels Youth Ambassador, Justin Van Malderen.

Hi, I am Justin and I am in my first year of university studying business engineering. Although I love my field of study I felt like something was missing. At university, they teach you the theory but don’t give you a chance to put your knowledge into practice. Luckily,  that is exactly what ONE is offering; giving their Youth Ambassadors all the tools and opportunities they need to make their voice heard.

I was astonished by the amount of responsibility ONE has given us – we’re  trusted with something important. That in itself has empowered me to work even better! You are constantly learning and that is what I love about being a Youth Ambassador.

On top of that, you are making friends from all over the world. I don’t think that I have ever met a more diverse group of people in my life. Even talking to all the other ambassadors is fascinating. There are so many different cultures in this world and it is amazing to experience them in real life.

After a day of work with ONE, I always have a good feeling. I don’t quite have the words for it but I really feel like I am making a difference. I am not just sitting around and watching everything pass by. I’m raising my voice and changing the world.

Joining ONE as a Youth Ambassador is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
