Already a policymaker with policy drafts in his hands, James Akan uses his position as a Spokesperson at Democracy Africa Youth Parliament as a training ground for bigger dreams in governance. James’ passion is only eclipsed by his intelligence about how to create change through policymaking and, like a smart governing leader, he listens to the youth he is serving and brings a needed voice to the surface for a better future. James shared his reasoning behind using policy for change and some of the work he’s already doing with Frontrunners Innovate Producer and Business Developer, Mary Kurek.
