Yasmin Poole is an award-winning speaker, writer and youth advocate. Named one of Australia's 100 Most Influential Women by the Australian Financial Review, Yasmin's work focuses on why diversity is necessary to ignite social change.
Yasmin developed a strong sense of justice at a young age. After growing up in a low-income family in country Victoria, she was instilled with the desire to stand up for the disadvantaged and create a fairer Australia.
She has since gone on to become a powerful representative for the youth voice. She is Plan International's National Ambassador and the Non-Executive Board Director of OzHarvest, Australia's leading food rescue charity.
Yasmin also frequently represents the views of young women in prominent media programs such as Q&A and The Drum.
In 2018, she represented over a million young Australians as the first-ever Chair of the Victorian Government's Youth Congress. Since then, she has gone on to represent Australian youth at APEC and the G20.
In 2019, Yasmin was the youngest member of the Top 40 Under 40 Most Influential Asian Australians and Top 25 Young Women to Watch in International Relations.
