MY MISSION IS… CHRISTINA ADANE ON THE COMPLEX NATURE OF PRIVILEGE

My Mission Is… is a podcast series cohosted by Mission’s founder Karina Givargisoff, and singer-songwriter of the U.K. band Texas, Sharleen Spiteri.

Trailblazer Christina Adane exists at the forefront of England’s youth climate movement. The 16-year-old is co-chairwoman of the Bite Back 2030 organization which aims to “achieve a world where all young people have the opportunity to be healthy,” by urging the government to feed vulnerable children. In addition, Adane is a creative and speaker, writing poems pertaining to the Black Lives Matter movement and sitting on the panel at numerous events, including The First London Children’s Food Summit, and Mission’s very own Youth Climate Change round table at Soho Works, London.

In this edition of My Mission Is, Christina talks to Karina and Sharleen about finding her voice as a young activist for racial and social equity, from her childhood activism to her current position in the London #BLM Movement.
