This international event marked Young’s first keynote speech, where she shared her story as a teen with an incarcerated father. She also joined a panel of youth speakers following her keynote and presented her views on what she feels can be a lack of empathy for prisoners. Her key message was that she wants her father to be seen as a human being; not as an inmate.
