Bio: My name is Josie Young, I am a writer, a community worker, an activist and a lover of all things chocolate and coffee related. More importantly however I am a mother, I have a son named Mandela. As a mother I want to make sure that everything I do - the words I write, the food I cook, the causes I support - makes my son's future brighter. In 2014, I decided I would start this blog as another forum through which I can fight for the future that my son deserves. One day, in the future, my five year old son Mandela will look at the world and ask me, “Mama, how could you have stood by and done nothing in the face of such injustices?” When that day comes, I hope I will be able to answer him. Josie Young holds a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Public Policy (2007), and a Masters of International and Community Development (2009).
