Ginette Villasmil, a Plan International Australia youth activist, lived in Venezuela until the country had a radical shift in politics, causing a terrible crisis. Her family fled to Australia and spent many years working hard for a better life. Ginette became involved in Venezuelan human rights activist groups and discovered her passion for justice. Studying architecture at the University of Technology Sydney, she realised that the western man-made (literally) spaces and systems around us are designed around the male baby boomer generation and have only had a slightly more diverse influence in the last couple of decades. There is still a big gap to close, and Ginette wants to bring other representation to the design sphere.
