Being young isn’t always easy. Either someone’s telling you that you need to think about your future and act like an adult or you’re frustrated because you’re being treated like a child and can’t do what you want. Life throws all kinds of curveballs at you, from the spots on your face to the loves of your life.
Gemma Cairney, former fashion stylist, Radio 1 DJ and author of Open: A Toolkit for How Magic and Messed Up Life Can Be, comes to Bradford Literature Festival for an open and honest debate about the issues that can affect all young people. She will be in conversation with local campaigner, 16-year-old Mehmoona Parvez.
