Hello! My name is Adrián and I come from Spain. I'm currently 17 years old. I took part in the Safer Internet Forums of 2020 and 2022. I believe children and young people's opinions really matter and aren't heard enough, specially by governments and companies. I think that projects like BIK can truly make this happen and make a difference in our society, that's why I'm proud of being part of it.
Hello, my name is Alide and I’m from Estonia. I’m currently 15 years old. I’m interested in politics and psychology. My favorite after school activities are singing and talking with friends. I have been a BIK Youth Ambassador for two years and I hope to be an ambassador this year too! My mission is to make internet better for kids not only in Europe but around the world.
Hi! My name is Alisa. I'm a 16-year-old from Finland. My interests are films, music, politics and astronomy. One of my biggest interests is the evolution of technology and how it affects everyday life. I was a part of the BIK Youth Panel in the 2022 Safer Internet Forum. Being a part of the BIK team has been one of my most interesting and educational opportunities so far. In the future, I hope to advocate for a safer internet and raise awareness of the issues regarding young people and the internet. Taking advantage of vulnerable internet users is too easy these days, and we need to ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience when online!
Hello, my name is Daria, I’m currently 16 and I live in Bucharest, Romania. I took part in the Safer Internet Forum 2022 which was a great experience that allowed me to learn and share my opinion about children’s online safety. I have been interested in this field for quite a long time and I have been an active ambassador by going to schools and teaching lessons about online safety, cyberbullying, grooming and other dangerous activities that take place in the online environment. I feel like we, as a youth panel, have already started having an impact on the world and my goal is to continue making as many changes as we can.
Hey! My name is Emily, I’m 17 and I live in Larnaca, Cyprus. I am interested in law and politics, which is why I’m passionate about finding ways to make the internet, something we all use daily, a safer place. I took part in the BIK Youth Panel and Safer Internet Forum 2022 in Brussels, and I really liked how we all worked together, shared ideas and perspectives and ultimately took one step forward in the right direction in terms of safer internet use.
Hello, I’m Teresa from Portugal and I’m 18 years old. I’m majoring in textile engineering in college, but I have many interests. I joined a group in my local school about internet security back in eighth grade when I was 14 years old. Since then, I have always been very passionate about helping others figuring more about how to be safe on the internet because I would love if someone did that for me. I joined the BIK Youth Panel in 2022, and I’m super excited to keep on working on this project. Projects like this are important because children deserve to have a voice in this big world, because they are the ones who can change it. Last but not least the message I always try to spread is “Once on the internet, forever on the internet”.
Hi everyone! My name is Theodora, I'm 18 and I'm from Romania. My interests are defending the rights of children, women and minority groups by participating in various activism and volunteering activities in my city. I participate in the BIK Youth Panel and in the Safer Internet Forum 2022 which was an amazing opportunity for me to learn about Internet security and also to meet people from all over Europe, with whom have common interests. I believe that it’s very important to give young people the chance to express their beliefs and ideas, as this is the only way things can change for the better. My hope is that in the near future young people will be able to enjoy technology to connect, learn and grow, without fear of harassment, cyberbullying and harmful content.
